You can use an ATV to tackle land and a jet-ski to tackle water, or you can blow everyone’s mind and master both land and lake with the Quadski, the first commercially available sports amphibian on the US market that can exceed 10mph on water.
As a matter of fact, with the high-performance BMW engine, this sweet ride can reach 45mph on both land and water, with the transition between wheels-up and wheels-down taking only seconds.
