Not everyone can walk on water, but anyone can drive in water. Amphibious vehicles make this possible. They are designed to travel on both land and water. Although amphibious vehicles have been around for a while, you don’t see them every day.
Amphibious vehicles include cars, trucks, buses, ATVs, military vehicles, boats, and even bikes. The idea for amphibious travel was conceived as far back as 1770. Since then, there have been creative and innovative displays of boats, buses, trucks and armoured military amphibious vehicles in use.
More recently, brands such as Lazareth and Amphicruiser are making trends. They have successfully perfected the art of driving on land and water in the same vehicle. From car/SUV to boat; land to water; driver to captain, it is quite the adventure.
