Gibbs Technologies Ltd, the world’s only High Speed Amphibian (HSA) technology specialist, today unveiled a prototype of the first commercially viable high-speed amphibian Quadbike/All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) - Quadski

Basically a 4x4 Waverunner, Dirt Bike and Quad Bike in ONE

Developed at a cost of more than $100 million, both Aquada and Quadski are scheduled for introduction in the U.S. during the first half of 2009. Fully
homologated for sale in Europe, a fleet of 10 Aquadas currently is undergoing tests in southeastern Michigan.

“A commercially viable high-speed amphibious vehicle has eluded auto
manufacturers, entrepreneurs and inventors for more than 100 years,” Gibbs noted.
“Recent developments in light-weight materials, engine technology and vehicle
architecture, however, have enabled us to accomplish what many believed to be
impossible.”

Initial design work on the Aquada began in Detroit in 1997 with a team of more
than 20 engineers. Product development later transferred to Coventry in the UK, where the company tapped into a unique blend of motorsports, aerospace and OEM engineering talent. More than one million man hours have gone into the development of the company’s technology.

In 2004, a Gibbs prototype HSA crossed the English Channel in a record-setting
time of less than two hours. During tests in Europe and North America, prototype
amphibians have traveled at speeds of more than 110 mph on land and 45 mph on water.

Both Quadski and Aquada also have the unique ability to transition from land-to-water or water-to-land in five seconds.
