So what does an amphibious hydrofoil sports car look like when its making a record-breaking run across the English Channel? We've seen pics of Frank Rinderknecht, the chief executive of Rinspeed, piloting the "Splash" in the chilly and choppy waters of the Channel, but we thought some live action video of the 3 hour and 14 minute-long voyage might make for some interesting viewing. Though the splash reportedly reached speeds of 80 kph on the water, the video shows it wasn't all smooth sailing and Rinderknecht was soaked by the time he reached the opposite shore.
