Amphicruiser in water

The Amphicruiser is a custom built amphibious four-wheel drive vehicle, which is powered by a 4.2-liter Toyota Land Cruiser engine that includes an onboard water jet that can be driven up a river or out to sea.

The vehicle drives like a regular 4×4 on land, easily holding freeway speeds, but proceeds at a modest 8 mph (13 km/h) in the water after a press of a button sends power to the water jet instead of the wheels.

The starting price for this hand-built machine is US$180,000 for a 2-door soft top, and goes all the way up to US$248,700 for a 4-door, fully equipped SUV. Check out the Amphicruiser in action in the video below.
