Here is another one from Rinspeed called "Splash", another of the high performance amphibious vehicle. It looks quite a stylish car that can be driven at high speeds in the water too.
The state of the Russian roads are known to all, & if someone has to go through a road filled with water, how would that be? Here is a test drive of Lada Niva, which was made to drive under water.
This is supposed to be designed & built by special Soviet car company during the sixties. In comparison to the technology & the features available in the cars during those days, this car was far advanced. It had a press button to start the engine, the gear selected was shown in the dashboard, & it had heating both the windscreens. And the best part was it could go in water & also on the road like any other car.
