#8. ‘Watercar’, The World’s Fastest Amphibious Car – $135,000
This sweet car is perfect for anyone looking for a twist on traditional boating or towing. The car is powered by a 300-hp Honda engine, and operates like a regular four-speed vehicle on land, reaching up to 80 mph on the road. When it’s time to hit the water, the built-in hydraulic wheel retraction system raises the wheels above the bottom of the hull and redirects the engine’s power to a Panther pump jet, capable of hitting 44 mph over water.
The steering wheel controls the vectored thrust of the pump jet for easy maneuvering over water, and it’s filled with 32’-cubic of US Coast Guard-approved closed-cell foam for maximum buoyancy. The resilient, fiberglass hull and body absorbs bumps, and its 26-gallon gas tank provides a 160-mile range.
