Incredible Amphibious Cars
SeaRoader Lamborghini Countach
World s First Amphibious Lamborghini: This is a mid engined (for ballast) Lamborghini Countach that was modded by SeaRoader aquatecht Mike Ryan to be amphibious. If it s got wheels, I ll make it float! boasts Ryan, who has also converted jeeps, motorcycles, a London taxi cab and even an ice cream van into water going vehicles. As you might imagine, converting a luxury sports car into an amphibious vehicle isn t a cheap undertaking; According to Ryan, the glass alone cost $3,007. In the water, a hydrofoil at the front of the car lifts the nose of the Countach, while hydraulic activators compress its Formula 1 style suspension system.
