An extraordinary £13,000 amphibious caravan, dubbed the Sealander by its German designer, is set to ensure road and boat trips will never be the same again.
The floating two-in-one two-bed mobile home has been created by Daniel Straub, a German-based industrial designer, to combine the features of an electric power boat and a camping trailer.
It took him two years to design, build and test the Sealander so that he could mass produce and sell it. The innovative floating caravan boasts on board cooking, cleaning, eating and sleeping facilities and can move around on water thanks to an electric motor.
The Sealander is expected to go on sale for camping/boating enthusiasts at the start of next year with a price tag of £13,000.
The 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show was the venue for the unveiling of Volvo’s The Concept You, a vehicle that blends contemporary Scandinavian design with smart pad technology. Thanks to new world amenities, the interior of the vehicle is uncluttered and aesthetically impeccable. Aside from the touch screen capabilities, The Concept You features rear suicide doors of Lincoln Continental fame and a four cylinder engine that utilizes a kinetic flywheel for better fuel consumption.
