    Rinspeed's First Underwater Car

     

    Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

    Kindest regards,

    Same here. I am also a big James Bond fan as well.  I am curious to know if there is a way to keep dry in the driver's seat.

    Should be cool to have a tour under the sea by driving a car :-) But as I searched further more about sQuba, I doubt it's possible to stay dry in this car especially since it is a sports car!
