The World's Fastest Amphibious Car

While the Python Water Car may not look as slick as a Porsche or an Aston Martin - It is capable of doing something way cooler - like zooming in and out of water with amazing ease and at twice the speed of currently available amphibious vehicles.

Built by Southern California based, Water Car Company, the Python sports a powerful 640 horsepower V8 engine of a Chevrolet Corvette, allowing it to reach speeds of up to 100mph on land. Its oomph in the water comes from a 500 horsepower Dominator Jet, that enables it to 'sail' at speeds of up to 60mph.

And there is no special training or equipment required either - All the driver has to do to go from land to water is move the gear into neutral, activate the jet drive and push a button to retract the wheels.  Simply reverse the process when out of the water and the car will cruise with ease on normal roads.

Built with the front-end of a truck and the rear-end of a Corvette, the car is not one of the most graceful-looking vehicles available. However, it is pretty cool for people looking for a high-performance car, both in land and in water.

Priced at around $170,000 USD, the car can be completely 'customized', with thousands of choices available for the exterior and interior color. It can also be fitted with a different engine, depending on the amount of power the customer is looking for. To check our more details go to: www.watercar.com
