Wonder what type of drive it uses ?
You can see a little hatch open at the back , don't think they'd just bolt a Merc outboard on.

I searched for this awesome looking vehicle...

Rinspeed "Splash" crossing English Channel - Autoblog (2 min 48 sec)

The cool thing is that its a swiss car...or thats what I gather from the site. Thing that suck is that this car is only good to use over in europe where natural gas is becomming more popular for fuel...damn thing is that by the time we in the U.S. can use that kind of stuff...europeans will be going back and forth to space in their cars!

Natural gas has been used in vehicles in the USA for decades in comercial fleets. It is now available in the USA for consumers.

LOL...forgive me for I have been in college for too long...I never owned a vehicle of my own...and the only vehicles I have ever been in or driven use common gasoline...People complain about gas prices way too much though I am glad to not have to do it myself...On a different subject I was just hunting online for a new rc vehicle I stumbled upon he video for while looking for more youtube videos about this car in the mentioned thread...I wouldn't mind getting one of these little vehicles mostly because its mobile...and can go in both land and water...RC Hariot Amphibious Vehicle...I see this and i can't help but picture it rescuing distressed

It'll carry just 4 beer cans? Not even a full 'six-pack'?

(Silly objection? Not really. I'd love to have one, and that was the only excuse I could think of NOT to get one.)

...I made a mistake, I looked at the price...@#$
