Get a Quadski and ditch the hitch

HSA%203.jpg

No, youíre not viewing a still from a James Bond movie. And, no, itís not a Lotus Esprit, either. But, it is a vehicle thatís just at ease on the open road as it is on the open water.

Gibbs Technologies Limited, based in the UK, has harnessed the High Speed Amphibian Technology it perfected into an RTV, sports car and an SUV.

The recently released Quadski combines the fun of a jet-ski with a four-wheeler. This true ATV is more than just for fun, as the manufacturer points out, it has great potential as an emergency vehicle for beach rescuers.

The Aquada sports car [pictured above] and the Humdinga SUV have appeared to date only as concept vehicles, but production is moving along and even the US government has expressed interest in the SUV for military purposes. With itís convertible top and water skiing apparatus, the Aquada is definitely for the fun-in-the-sun crowd.

So, whether enjoying a seaside holiday on your Quadski, outrunning men with steel teeth so you can save the world in the nick of time in your feisty roadster, or performing military maneuvers in the Humdinga, thereís sure to be a hybrid vehicle just for you. So, now instead of driving your car to the water with your boat in tow, you can Ďditch the hitch!í

I'd rather like a Humdinger for work! Alan Gibbs is a Kiwi based in London. These vehicles would be awesome for those of us who travel around Auckland and could shortcut through the harbours.

Thomas Abel:
