If you have been into amazing cars and road trips, then you might consider a new high, going underwater using an amphibious car.
You might have seen it on James Bond flicks but the Squba car from Rinspeed lets car lovers experience the thrill in real life. The Squba was actually inspired by the amphibious vehicle used by the British spy agent in 1977 played by Roger Moore in The Spy who Loved Me.
From the outside, the Squba just looks like your ordinary supercar that will let you zoom quickly on the highway but it has the ability to go at 3mph under 30 feet of water. Yes, that is pretty slow and you can even be faster if you will get out and swim but the concept car achieves what other vehicles cannot do.
The Squba takes the form of a convertible and the designers really made this as their conscious choice so the occupants can escape in case they need to.
So in case you plan to stay dry and have fun underwater, this concept car is not for you. The submersible does not come cheap and has a tag price of $400,000. It is still cheaper than a Rolls-Royce but it does not come with all the practicality and all the spy car features you might wish for.
