The GIBBS Quadski seems to have finally evolved from a prototype developed in 2006 to a commercially-available output. It will prepare the ground for a number of other HSAs [High Speed Amphibians] for consumers, sports enthusiasts, law enforcement agencies, first responders and other commercial enterprises. This amphibious vehicle can be driven like a regular 4WD quad while on land, but when entering the water it draws in its wheels within five seconds and becomes a Jet Ski-like vehicle. This futuristic vehicle features a 15-gallon (57-liter) fuel tank, and is powered by a 175-horsepower BMW Motorrad four-cylinder water-cooled engine (that engine also features electronic fuel injection). The Quadski has a declared top speed of 45 mph (72 km/h) both on land and water. The GIBBS founder Alan Gibbs and chairman Neil Jenkins announced that the Quadski would be available next month in five colors, yet in a single-person model only. At first it will be represented in picked U.S. markets at a price about US$40,000; the company expects to introduce the Quadski to European and Latin American markets in 2014.
