First Underwater “Flying” Car !?

leave a comment »

Swiss-based car manufacturing company  Rinspeed designed the world’s first real submersible car this year.
The inspiration for the sQuba was the animated Lotus Esprit driven by James Bond 007 in The Spy Who Loved Me in 1977. ( Science fiction-oriented movie??) 
The car can be driven both on land and under water and is a zero-emission all electric vehicle which uses three electric motors, one for land travel and two for water.


Here is a movie, you can see how the car is driven underwater.
