Underwater sQuba car will cost you $1.5 million

by Thor on Feb. 15th, 2008

Are you in the market for a new car? A Swiss company this week announced that it has a $1.5 million concept car -- sQuba -- that can drive on road and under water, just like James Bond's slick ride from "The Spy Who Loved Me." Life preservers are not included.

Now the car looks really cool and it's invention is incredible but let's be real cars break down all the time. What happens if your car breaks down underwater??? Then you just lost 1.5 million dollars in a car that is under the river because it broke down on you.......

What type of mechanic would be able to fix such a car? You would have to take it to the maker of the car if somethin happened.

I suppose if you have enough money to afford one of those toys the fact that you would have to take it to the designer for repairs shouldnt really be an issue. I doubt this would be more than a toy that is for fun, showing off and recreation rather than a main source of transportation and therefore being out of commission for a week or two probably not that big an issue???

a cool car but why do you need it ???????

why not get a lambo and a 400.000 thousand dollar trunck that you dont drive and keep in your garage all the time it makes no sense its like this car you'll probably never drive it under water with the fear of it breaking down and you get traped underwater. besides i heard it only goes like 7 feet under water and is a gas guzzler what happens if you run out of gas in the middle of the ocean

I bet that's how an employee of the coal-plant that supplies the electricity would describe it...friendly to the environment. Good one!

I read that it goes 35 feet underwater and drives up to 75mph on land. Something like this would be a toy. Entirely entertainment for those who can afford that luxery.

this car rocks but its so expensive
if it was 150/130 thousand us$
i would buy it.it is kinda useless cuz
u wont be always drivin it underwater
it looks like the opel speedster
its dangerous too cuz if a shark or
octopus cums then ur dead :\ too bad
and if u run out of gas its a triple threat
and it is said it cums with all the scuba
diving items.
its dangerous if u break down underwater!!!!!!!!!
its a great technology
but who in the world will fix it if it breaks down
if it dies ur money is a total waste!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

From What I read about it the car automatically returns to the surface when there are no occupants in the vehicle. So if it broke down you would just need to paddle back up and let the car do its thing I imagine

I think that the S-quba car is very good cuz it allows new kind of interesting and in some cases faster transportation.
It can go down to 10m deep, 6km/h on water, 3km/h under. It works only on battery.
It probably has some GPS device in it, if in case it brakes down it can be found and pulled out. Probably not good to use it in the river or such.
Price is way to high, 1,5M$, you start thinking of Bugatti or whatever but production does not look very expencive, like some Lotus car with intermotor + few turbines.
Basic model should not be more than 90.000€ up to more exclusive model - 200.000€.

Just imagine the joy under or it may present new more interesting way of public transportation.
