After Aquada and Quadski I think now it’s time to present you Humdinga the first “real” 4x4. No terrain, no water will ever stop Humdinga.
The 5-seater Humdinga powered by a 350 BHP engine is capable of travelling on land 100 mph and on water at 40 mph.
Although the new application utilizes the same patented HSA technological platform as the Aquada, it shares no common component parts or systems with its predecessor. It has been designed specifically to access remote and hostile terrain. The Humdinga can comfortably transport 5 people complete with luggage/supplies on at least twice as much of the world’s surface as previous vehicles.
The Humdinga illustrates the scalability and versatility of HSA technology. HSA Technology can make vehicles ranging from passenger cars to SUVs to buses and trucks High Speed Amphibians.
The Humdinga transforms from land to water mode at a touch of a button. The wheels retract, the power train switches from the wheels to a jet propulsion system and the vehicle is in amphibious mode. In just a few seconds the driver is planning at a speed of forty miles per hour.
"This 4WD HSA demonstrates that the technology is adaptable for a whole range of applications. It took us 8 years, a million man-hours and tens of millions of pounds to develop HSA technology. With this latest vehicle, I’m sure that the technology’s potential is clear for all to see.” comments Alan Gibbs, Chairman of Gibbs Technologies.
On land the Humdinga can accelerate from 0-60 in 9.2 seconds and on water can reach the “plane” in less than 10 seconds. It has a curb weight of 4,409 lbs (2,000 kg), has all wheel independent air suspension and runs on regular unleaded petrol. The vehicle is 212.60 in. (5400 mm) in length, 72.83 in. (1850 mm) in height and 78.74 in. (2000 mm) in width.
