TREKOL – The Floating Car
November 10, 2008
It may not look as good as your favorite SUVs, but TREKOL 39294 is more special than the usual service utility vehicle. What separates it from other cars is its ability to float on water at a speed of 10 km per hour, allowing scientists to access they could only get to by boat. The TREKOL 39294 uses 6 unique tubeless tires that allow it to run through sand, snow and marshes without sinking even with 8 people on board and fully loaded.
The TREKOL is road legal, it has a fiberglass body and can withstand temperatures ranging from -60 to +60 degrees Celsius. This monster of a car is environment-friendly, its tires leave no rut and don’t hurt the soil ( the pressure on the soil is between 0,1-0,4 kilos per square centimeter).
