Rinspeed's first underwater Car
Rinspeed will present its new sQuba, the worlds first diving car, at the
Geneva Motor Show (March 6-16). The car is not only able to drive on roads
autonomously with a push of a button (thus without a driver, passenger or
further assistance), but can also transform into an amphibious vehicle
which can be submerged in water up to 10 meters (33 feet). An electric
motor with powerful torque drives the rear wheels, while the propulsion on
the water is ensured by two propellers in the stern and two powerful jet
drives in the bow propelling the vehicle under water while diving. When
underwater, the driver and passenger are enclosed in the vehicle thanks to
light weight body components made of futuristic Carbon Nano Tubes and are
supplied with fresh breathing air by the self-contained on-board system.

Fast & Furious 4: The Cars and Trucks
FAST & FURIOUS COVERAGE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Opens Friday, April 3!!!
In the movie business, cars are expendable. They're not respected, nowhere
near cherished, subject to abuse and constantly thrashed. It doesn't matter
if the cars are Ferraris or Ford Crown Vics, the job of any vehicle in a
movie is to tell the story effectively — even if it must be destroyed in
order to do so. And in a movie like Fast & Furious (opening April 3) the
cars do a lot of storytelling. We should know; we went behind the scenes.
In October of 2007, Dennis McCarthy was hired as the picture car
coordinator for Fast & Furious, and after leasing a 60,000-square-foot shop
in Southern California's San Fernando Valley and hiring a staff of
mechanics and fabricators, he got started building the 240 or so cars that
would be needed for the production — to portray about a dozen on-screen
cars tied to a character. After all, duplicates were needed of every car to
ensure the production never had to slow down; to perform specific stunts;
and to be wrecked in the most spectacular way possible.
Using documentation from the production's picture car department and
in-person interviews with McCarthy and his hard-working team of
fabricators, Inside Line has created the most comprehensive guide to this
year's hottest movie cars. Here it is: Inside Line's guide to the cars and
trucks of Fast & Furious.
