Amphibious technology has been around for quite a long time, dating back to the propeller-powered Amphicar of the 1960s, but never before has there been a swimming vehicle that could compete with singular-purpose vehicles. Along came a British company called Gibbs with the intention to blow the competitors out of the water… literally.

$100 million in development and 60+ patents later, Gibbs technologies has proudly announced it’s third foray into the amphibious world with the intensely personal Quadski. Half-quad, half-jetski, all James Bond, the most significant feature is speed. It has the ability to blur the landscape at speeds exceeding 50 mph on both land and water.

What this means to you: With the ability to convert from land-mode to water-mode in about 5 seconds, you’ll never miss a change to make waves, on whatever terrain you choose. Maybe that’s why we hear they just landed a military contract.

Price: $16,000 (estimated) @ Gibbs
