Rinspeed Squba – Concept Electric Submersible Sports Car


The Rinspeed sQuba concept car will be unveiled to the general public during the Geneva Motor Show in March 2008.

This sports car has some futuristic features under its frame. The makers claim that the car is a completely zero emission vehicle, as it is powered by rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries. And it can drive itself, without any input from a driver – all thanks to a sophisticated laser sensor system from the Hamburg company Ibeo. But the best feature of the car is its ability to move under water like a submarine. CEO of Rinspeed, and  avowed James Bond fan, Frank M. Rinderknecht,  was inspired to build this car, after watching Roger Moore use a submersible car in The Spy Who Loved Me’.  The car can not only traverse water bodies, but can also dive till a depth of 10 m, with top speed of 3 km/h underwater.

Due to an open top design, the driver will have have to breathe underwater using compressed air from an integrated air-tank.
