A car that can be driven underwater is set to be unveiled next month.
“For three decades I have tried to imagine how it might be possible to build a car that can fly under water,” said the head of Rinspeed. “Now we have made this dream come true.”
“Why would anybody need a car that travels under water?”
“It is undoubtedly not an easy task to make a car watertight and pressure resistant enough to be maneuverable under water,” said Rinderknecht. “The real challenge however was to create a submersible car that moves like a fish in water.”
“But why would anybody want that?”
Aesthetic appeal aside, the open-top design of the car is actually a safety feature that permits passengers to get out quickly during an emergency
“It’s not even got a roof, then? So the passengers get wet and have to breathe through aqualungs?”
“So why would anybody want that, then?”
The car can descend up to 10 metres.
“Why. Why, why why?”
You’re not getting into the spirit of this.
“How much is it?”
Sorry, I have to go now. If I can just get this bloody thing to start .. I think I’ve flooded the engine.
