Gibbs Quadski - World's First High-Speed Sports Amphibian [VIDEO]

Gibbs Quadski is the world’s first high-speed sports amphibian that will go on sale in the United States next month. According to one of the founders Neil Jenkins, the Quadski will retail for about $40,000 (roughly £25k).

The Quadski is capable of reaching speeds of 45mph on both land and water with quick transitions between both. When the driver presses a button its wheels retract when entering the water and deploy when approaching land.

The Quadski is equipped with a 175bhp BMW Motorrad engine and transmission.

“Quadski represents an investment of more than $200-million and two-million man hours of work over a period of 15 years,” said Alan Gibbs. “With the introduction of Quadski next month, our dream of providing high-speed amphibian transportation to consumers will become a reality.

European sales are expected to start in 2014.
