This vehicle was for sale on Ebay.
Somebody in Spain had a website and was selling this
Amphib for very little Euro's.
First problem was that it was the Searoader.
Even the pictures on this website ware stolen from the
Second problem was that he forgot to pay for the URL
and the work to make this website.

Their craft differs from all previous attempts at an
amphibious vehicle for consumers.

Road speeds of more than 140 mph and better than 60 mph
But the prototype did not go that fast.
And they where never heard of again.
