Rinspeed Dives Underwater with the sQuba

    Thirty years ago, James Bond drove under water through the magic of animation in The Spy Who Loved Me. Rinspeed has turned Hollywood fiction into reality with the power of innovation, imagination, and ecological awareness. The sQuba, which debuted at the 2008 Geneva Motor Show this month, is a versatile concept car that can travel up to 33 feet under water. Since the sQuba is an amphibian vehicle, it features an electric motor with powerful torque to drive the rear wheels as well as two propellers ensuring momentum in the water. Aside from being an imaginative invention, the sQuba also boasts zero emissions and zero pollution preserving the air above and below water. (www.rinspeed.com
