Amphibious car makes its way to the UAE

Posted on Jan 19, 2014 by

Ever since WaterCar inventor Dave March posted a video of the Panther’s capabilities in June, he’s been bombarded with a flood of interested buyers, from NASCAR drivers to Silicon Valley tycoons. But that’s not all, because even Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum, the Crown Prince of Dubai, has got in on the action, reportedly ordering six of the amphibious cars!

The Panther is a more rugged, more affordable version of an earlier model called the Python. The Python could reach a record-setting speed of 95 kmph on water, though the $300,000 price tag made it inaccessible to most buyers. The Panther is smaller, easier to maintain, and half the price. WaterCar sells the Panther as a kit, meaning that buyers must hire a third party to install the engine. The owner must also register it as both a boat and a car.
