The latest boat-truck concept built by leading amphibious automaker Gibbs Technology is designed to be as adept on land as an all-terrain vehicle while being as fully capable in the water as patrol and rescue boats. While the the 30-foot long vehicle can carry up to 15 passengers, it only weighs as much as a standard SUV (4500 pounds), thanks to a chassis consisting entirely of carbon fiber.

i think they could improve on the wheels. they look a little small for that size of a vehicle. if they were bigger they could more places. it looks great on water, but on land its so long and has tiny tires, its only limited to streets. i want to see what it can do off road.
