The World’s Fastest Amphibious Car

This is the world’s fastest amphibious car, speeding over the water at 44 mph and reaching 80 mph on the road. Powered by a 300-hp Honda engine, it operates like a regular vehicle on land with four-speed manual transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, lights, turn indicators, and a folding windshield. When it’s time to enter the water, a built-in hydraulic wheel retraction system raises the wheels above the bottom of the hull.

The patented transfer case redirects the engine’s power to the Panther pump jet—the same marine propulsion technology used in personal watercraft. The steering wheel controls the vectored thrust of the pump jet for easy maneuvering over the water. Filled with 32′ cu. of U.S. Coast Guard-approved closed-cell foam for maximum buoyancy, the composite fiberglass hull partners with the car’s lightweight chromoly chassis and long-travel off-road suspension to provide a strong, resilient body that absorb bumps while coasting over waves or rough roads.
