Mr. Bond, your car is here
Swiss specialist car maker Rinspeed will introduce its new model, the sQuba (as in scuba) at the Geneva Motor Show next month. The sQuba, built with James Bond in mind, is the world's first submersible car. The roadster, which is stable at a depth of about 33 feet, has zero emissions, is driven by three electric motors and is powered by lithium-ion batteries. Passengers breathe through an onboard tank, but they do tend to get a bit wet.
