Check this out ... RinSpeed sQuba

Hi,
I saw this today, and thought it might interest you guys.
Apparently, RinSpeed a Swiss car tuner has developed an aquatic car. You need to look at the photos and the video. Personally, I think it one of the coolest cars I have ever seen. If I had $400k to spend, I would buy one.
Enjoy!

Does the car get salvage flood title when it comes out of the water?

That is just too cool!!! But I guess it minimizes the worry 'bout an RMS leak! Any other leak could be catastrophic! WOW!

I remember an old Popular Science (or Mechanics) article on the original car back in '77. They said that it had no propulsion in the water - movement was supplied by divers pushing it just outside of the camera view. They also said it was such a bad submarine they left it on the floor of the Caribbean when they were done filming!
I wonder if it is still there after 31 years...
