Incredible example of ingenuity and craftsmanship. One of the most unique vehicles in the world. With the flip of a switch it literally transforms it's shape from "land mode" to "water mode". The HydroCar made its debut on the cover of Popular Mechanics. Also appearing in Forbes magazine. Not only is it extremely interesting to look at because of what it is, but even more impressive is the flawless execution of the build. The builder logged 18,300 hours. The attention to detail is outstanding. Right down to a 3 ring binder owners manual. Every item function is explained in over the top detail. Now the cool stuff- it's powered by a 572 Merlin motor Dyno Tuned at 762 hp and 712 lbs of torque. Has 3 inch stainless exhaust, race prepped automatic, 4 wheel steering. Wicked looking polished stainless prop on Arneson surface drive. Everything mechanical is heavy duty and overkill. The structure is space frame stainless steel with aluminum skin. Has 14 gallons of Imron paint and 595 powder coated parts.
This would be the centerpiece of any collection. It draws a crowd, therefore works as a great promotional piece. Includes a custom built 3 axle enclosed 34 ft trailer. The original plan was to produce these and sell for $495,000.
This is the one and only and can be yours.
