"The First Big Wave that Swamps it And This Expensive Toy Is Gone Forever !"

"And how long Before the Salt Water Corrodes the Chassis and Destroys the Electrical System ?"

The awkward styling is unlikely to tempt car-lovers away from their Ferraris and Porsches.

But then this 125,000 machine has a party piece to blow its competitors clean out of the water.

It is called the Python, and its makers claim it is the fastest amphibious vehicle ever sold.

It can hit 60mph on the waves - quicker than many speedboats - but is said to be equally at home on the road. All the driver has to do before leaving dry land is put the gears into neutral, engage the jet drive, then push a button to raise the wheels.

I want one. A little pricey at 183 grand so I would need to win the lottery.
