We reported about the Rinspeed Splash two weeks ago the first time. Back then only computer generated photos were available. Now Rinspeed published a set of real photos of the Sports Car that can Fly, Swim and of course Drive. The Concept car will be shown at the Geneva Auto Show (74e Salon International de l'Auto) from March 4th to 14th 2004.
The Rinspeed Splash has a folding wing system powered by hydraulics that enables the car to take off in the air.
The Splash is powered by a 750 ccm natural Gas motor, which puts out 140 PS. The Splash can reach about 200 km/h on the stree, 50 km/h in the water and 80 km/h above water. (more details here in german, more Photos are here).
The Splash is not a plane but basically gets out of the water like some of those high-speed boats.
We reported about the Gibbs Aquada Amphibian Car last year. Take also a look at the Rinspeed Beduin.
