It's been just about a year since we last heard anything about the Gibbs Aquada, which should be coming to American roads and shores near you shortly. Last we heard, Gibbs was looking for an American partner and a place to get some engineering work and production done. At least one of those goals seems to have been met, as reports are now coming in that Saleen, makers of super-fast Mustangs and exotic cars, has been tapped to provide design and engineering work for the U.K. based aquatic vehicle company.

Saleen will be working on the U.S. version of the Aquada, a vehicle which is intended to offer sportscar performance on land and speedboat thrills on the water. Other vehicles from Gibbs include an all-terrain Hummer-style aquatic utility vehicle known as the Humdinga and the Polish Quadski, which combines the capabilities of a four-wheeled ATV and a jet ski.

      I'm almost positive I've seen one of the prototypes driving in Michigan. It looked like a Miata from far away but when it approached me I noticed the V-Hull!

      What's the market for a car like this? I guess places like Miami will go for it...?

      It's a cool novelty. From what I understand they're semi-affordable, at least for the group they're targeted at. I could see it wearing out after you've scared all your friends by driving it into the lake though.

      This poor story gets no comments so I'll give it one. This is the stupidest thing I've seen in a long time and if there really is a market out there for sports cars that look like dingys, then I'm getting some first gen RX7s and putting keels on them.
