Amphibious Lamborghini Countach up for grabs at a steep price of $57,000
We all just love amphibious being and things, don’t we? That’s the reason why this amphibious Lamborghini Countach caught our eye. Of course it is not a real Lambo but it looks like one and it is as good on land as on water. This street racer dubbed ZIA originally built by Mike Ryan, a specialist engineer at SeaRoader based in UK, famous for converting regular cars into amphibious ones. In fact they have built quite a few ones for Hollywood movies and hit shows like Top Gear. Not to forget that it made appearance in popular European shows and shows like BBC TV, TopGear and Autovisie.
This unique Lamborghini look alike is apparently listed on eBay for sale and was originally sold 15 years ago but rarely used after that. To be honest, the car is not in its best condition right now, needing a bit of restoration to come back to its prime. The current price tag of £50,000 (approx. $57,000 USD) is only for serious car collectors with a fat pocket.
It’s metamorphosis from a road car into a boat like car happens as it engages the suspension hydraulics into hydrofoil for aquatic stability. The 15-inch alloys turn into rims with hydraulic actuators and rudders come into play. And yes I just forgot to mention, it is powered by a Rover V8 engine mated to a R30 transaxle gearbox.
