The Chinese Amphibious Car

Chinese Amphibious Car
After 13 years of hard work, a man in China is ready with his amphibious car! Yes, his car works both on roads and water. Wang Hongjun, who is an electrician by profession, often drives his odd car to the lake in Qian'an city, his hometown, to fish. Take a look at the picture.

He told the Beijing Times that his amphibious car cost him about £100,000 and 13 years of persistence to develop. After driving it to Beijing to find investors, he told the paper: "I'm looking for auto producers who are interested in my creation, since I don't want to keep it to myself."

The yellow sportscar can be sealed to make it waterproof by remote control. A column-shaped thruster and two propellers are installed in the car's boot. Wang said his car can float and drive in the water, but he refused to reveal exactly how it works. Wang claims that he has even taken his son for a 10-mile drive out to sea.
