A CAR enthusiast has completed his six-year project to turn his dream sports car into a 60mph sea-worth vehicle.
Capped with a brushed aluminium and stainless steel finish, Marc built the car himself over the top of a 174hp Mazda rotary engine, designing a body which could function as a road-vehicle, yet also be waterproof when hitting the lakes and seas for a spin. The car is one of 25 vehicles that is currently vying for the title of fastest amphibious vehicle. When Marc started building the car in 2006, he aimed to reach 60mph - beating the water-speed record of 45mph set by an amphibious car. That record has now risen to 60mph by a range of competing cars - although with no official body to rule on the faster, many vehicles are claiming the title. –MO
