Indian inventor makes car that can also be used as a boat


An inventor in the Indian state of Kerala has come out with a car that can travel on land and on water, much like the Aquada, a car that costs around $150,000. 26 year old Vinod, a gizmo nut and a mechanic by profession modified a Maruti 800 (India’s best selling car) and fitted the rear of the car with a Yamaha boat motor. Vinod went through numerous financial difficulties before he could complete his dream project. He plans to start production of the car and sell it for Rs 850,000 (approximately $20,000).
