Imagine a vehicle unlike any other. A vehicle that is exciting, exceptional and unique. This is the Gibbs Aquada, the vehicle that will transform your life. This exciting and unique vehicle is capable of over 100mph on land and in excess of 30mph on water.

Entering the water is simple as “riding a bike”, the only think that you’ll have to do is to press a button and to drive into the water. Aquada does everything else: it raises automatically the wheels and you’ll have to accelerate to enter the water. The whole process takes less than 12 seconds. After that you can really enjoy driving your can on the water. Aquada is powerful enough to tow a water skier, and if you really want to enjoy the “feeling” of driving this innovative vehicle you have to open the collapsible roof section and you’ll going to feel like in a high performance speedboat.
