Gibbs Humdinga - Amphibian SUV

Gibbs Humdinga - Amphibian SUV
 
 

Gibbs introduces military version of the Aquada amphibian car called Humdinga.

Powered by a 350 HP engine, the 5-seater 'Humdinga' is capable of travelling on land at 100 mph and on water at 40mph. Although the new water SUV uses the same patented HSA (High Speed Amphibian) technological platform as the Gibbs Aquada, it shares no common component parts or systems with its predecessor.
The Gibbs Humdinga switches from land to water mode with a push of a button. The wheels retract, the power train switches from the wheels to a jet propulsion system and the vehicle is in amphibious mode.
As a concept vehicle, it is not intended that the Gibbs Humdinga will be manufactured in its current form unless Arnold Schwarzenegger orders one.
More details on Humdinga Product Page. News seen on Engadget.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
