Boat or Car?

Driving your sports car into a lake is a very bad idea – unless it’s actually a boat that looks like a car. A group of three friends in Egypt came up with the idea of these custom-made powerboats which look just like convertible sports cars. Sadly, they’re not amphibious, so they only work on water, but they still look awesome.

We’ve had some experience around here driving around in microcars, but we’ve never seen anything quite like this custom-built remake of a 1970 Chevy Nova, powered by a Kawasaki motorcycle engine. It looks like a pain to get in and out of, but a blast to drive.
