The Amphibious ATV
This is the world’s first high-speed all-terrain vehicle that travels both over the land and water at up to 45 mph. Powered by a 140-hp BMW engine, it operates as an ATV on land with four 12″-diam. aluminum wheels, 25″ Diam. x 8″ W rubber tires, electronic shift transmission (with reverse), and four-wheel disc brakes. With rear-wheel drive and an 81/2″ ground clearance, the ATV uses independent coil springs to provide a smooth ride over any terrain. Upon entering the water, its retraction system raises the wheels above the waterline to a 45° angle to enable smooth waterborne riding in less than five seconds.
The engine’s power automatically transfers to a proprietary Gibbs jet drive that propels the craft to planing speed in seconds while the handle bars control the jet’s vectored thrust for easy maneuvering over the water. Its monocoque composite hull and comfortably padded seats support two riders weighing a total of 350 lbs.
