Is it a road? In our city of Yangon, which is not clear whether it is a waterway or not, it will be disappointing for low-end cars. Even moderately high cars are flooded to the point where it is alarming. If it is now on the water, How convenient will it be for small cars that can go comfortably on land? What I would like to explain now is the water that was mentioned on Top Gear last year in 2021. So, it’s about nine cars that will be able to travel comfortably on land.
1. Prodrive Watercar
According to the American manufacturers, this car is the fastest amphibious car in the world. With a 3.7-liter V6 engine, it can reach 43 mph at sea. This car is from the United States.

It was first introduced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2008 and is based on the Lotus Esprit featured in the 1977 Jane’s Bond car. It has lithium-ion batteries for recharging and can travel up to 3 km underwater, 6 km on water, and 120 km/h on land. The price has not yet been disclosed. There is no new information about the production of the car yet.
3. Project Sea Lion
Since, there are not many records about this car. Built from TIG-welded aluminum, it is powered by a Mazda 13B rotary engine. It can travel up to 180 miles per hour on land and 60 miles per hour in water, which is an astonishing figure. So, this car is not completely finished.
It debuted at the 1961 New York Motor Show and sold until production ceased in 1968. In other words, it is the only amphibious vehicle that is the easiest for the general public to purchase. 1.1-liter four-cylinder petrol engine.
5. Gibbs Aquada
In 2004, Richard Branson drove the Gibbs Aquada for an hour. At forty minutes and six seconds, he set the record for the fastest crossing of the English Channel. So, it has a McLaren F1-style three-seater layout and is said to be powered by a 2.5-liter Rover V6 engine. It can travel over 100mph on land and over 30mph in water.
6. Dutton Surf
After the Suzuki Jimny left the UK due to emissions regulations, the Dutton Surf was produced based on the Suzuki Jimny in 2005. Previously, Dutton had been a Kit Cars manufacturer, which he later left.
7. Rinspeed Splash
The Rinspeed Splash is a hydrofoil with a 750cc twin-cylinder that produces 139bhp and 111lb ft of torque. It is said that it can fly about 60 cm in water. The way it works is that in shallow water it is no different from other amphibious vehicles. However, once it reaches a depth of 1.3 meters, it deploys its side and rear fins. The fins propel the Splash upward, allowing it to cut through the water at speeds of up to 50 mph.
8. Hobbycar B612 (Cars can travel conveniently)

9. DUKW (Cars can travel conveniently)
GMC Truck and Coach Chevrolet produced this car in 1942 during World War II. It was used by the US and Allied forces and was pronounced six-wheel-drive as well as Duck. Especially when goods are loaded inland from a ship anchored in the sea. It was a vehicle specially used to transport people. It can carry up to 25 soldiers in one trip. The equipment can carry more than 2 tons.
Therefore, the above cars will not be available in Myanmar. Some cars also seem to have difficulties in continuing production. Friends, if you want a car. Which car do you want? I think that we should have cars like this for a place with a lot of rain.(Cars can travel conveniently)
