Have $159,000 USD and want the fastest amphibious car in the world? Meet WaterCar Panther. Powered by a 300HP Honda-sourced engine, it’s capable of traveling at 44 mph on water and 80 mph on land. Best of all, you operate it like a regular vehicle on land using a four-speed manual transmission, while four-wheel disc brakes, lights, turn indicators, and a folding windshield keep you safe.
As you enter water, an integrated hydraulic wheel retraction system raises the wheels above the bottom of the hull. The patented transfer case then redirects the engine’s power to the Panther pump jet—the same marine propulsion technology, the same one used in personal watercraft. You can then use the steering wheel to control the vectored thrust of the pump jet for maneuverability over the water.

Filled with 32′ cu. of U.S. Coast Guard-approved closed-cell foam for maximum buoyancy, the composite fiberglass hull partners with the car’s lightweight chromoly chassis and long-travel off-road suspension to provide a strong, resilient body that absorb bumps while coasting over waves or rough roads.
