The Land Shark. Three wheels, three seats. 250 mph on land, 50 mph in the water. Yours for only £10-16,000, once they start building them. At least you can get a shirt now.

Nice pipedream.

Aww, I was hoping to see a link about the great old SNL skit.

Hopefully they will call one of the models the "Belushi Land Shark".

Almost as practical as an earlier attempt at a landshark (and a few other unique vehicles.)

Enh, they're getting Defense money to fund the prototype, so it might just happen. We'll see.

250 mph on land? That seems a little exaggerated... £10-16,000? Hell, there isn't a traditional car made for even 5 to 10 times that amount that can go 250 mph... this is just silly...

Don't mess about with concepts and animations - drool over an amphibious sports car you can actually own - the amazing Gibbs Aquada. This was demonstrated on 5th Gear (a UK motor-head TV programme) this week, and impressed the hell out of me. Apparently Richard Branson has one, but I have no idea if this is a good thing or not.
