According to Wikipedia, “An amphibious vehicle (or simply amphibian), is a vehicle or craft, that is a means of transport, viable on land as well as on water.” Now, here’s an amphibian sports car called Hydra Spyder.
The build process for the Hydra Spyder has taken approximately 16 months from conception to completion. The idea was to build a unique amphibious vehicle, built for speed, which would introduce an entirely new means of transportation to the market.
This vehicle is considered a sport utility vehicle because it is longer and wider than a standard car. It is 18’6” long and 7’wide. It is also a little over 5’ high standing at 62” and weighing approximately 3,600 pounds. Currently we are working on gaining federal bumper standards exemptions and air bag exemptions as the bumpers would drag in the water and the air bags would deploy on the water with the G forces of hitting the waves.
We can proudly say that the Hydra Spyder is an amphibious vehicle completely engineered, designed, created and constructed from the ground up. And built in all respects in the United States of America.
