Unique Machines: Sports Sub

Robert Leeds has designed what he calls the first “underwater sports car.” Subeo, his company in Essex, England, is now taking orders for the Aquarius, a submarine available in two commercial versions, one that dives to 50 meters (164 feet) and another that can reach a depth of 100 meters (328 feet). The prototype, the Gemini (pictured),is a two-seater, but the three-seat Aquarius model will be ready for production in a few months. 

 

At $845,000, the Aquarius (the 50-meter model) is pricier than a sports car, and it does not move nearly as fast. Its nickel–sodium chloride batteries provide a maximum speed of 8 mph (and a range of 8 to 15 miles per charge), but such a speed should be sufficient: Drivers and passengers will not want to zip past the exotic underwater scenery.
