The authors of the Carfection channel tried on land and in the water an amphibious vehicle based on the previous generation Suzuki Jimny. The car was built by the British company Dutton, which specializes in whale cars.
The small frame SUV received a new sealed composite and stainless steel body. Large rubber moldings mark the waterline and allow the amphibian to moor without damage.
- For overland travel, a standard 85-horsepower 1.3 petrol engine is used, and in the water it powers the rear-mounted water jet. The transfer from the wheel drive to the jet is carried out using several levers with the clutch pedal depressed. On the water, the amphibian is controlled by a rudder and a gas pedal.
- Dutton sells ready-made kits for converting Suzuki Jimny into a boat. The set costs 11,690 pounds sterling (1.05 million rubles), which is comparable to the price of a new SUV: in Russia they ask for 1,539,000 rubles.
