Transformer Spotted !
Have you ever thought of riding some vehicle on road and transform that vehicle into a speedboat and cruise with speed ? Well we got yourself an amazing engineering marvel again . That’s a Gibbs Sports Quadski
This piece of engineering has BMW Motorrad K1300 engine.
Quadski is capable of running at a staggering speed of 45 mph on both land as well as water.
The hull of the quadski is made of a lightweight composite material. This ride is perfectly stable on land as well as water because of its perfectly optimised center of gravity.
The Best thing about Quadski is their patented suspension. It gives a superb ride and handling on land and retracts when on the water. The complete transition of road riding vehicle to PWC ( personal Watercraft) takes under five seconds, at the push of a button.
The proprietary Gibbs jet drive is lighter and more compact than traditional marine industry water jets and provides high levels of thrust and maneuverability on water, propelling the Quadski to planing speed in seconds.
Features Include :
Land speed : 45mph.
Water Speed : 45 mph.
Propulsion system: Gibbs jet drive with reverse. Hull: Monocoque dual skin composite.
Impeller: Stainless steel 5 blade.
Brakes: 4 wheel disc brakes.
