This is the must-see exhibit at the Singapore Motor Show 2008. This open-top convertible, produced by Swiss automobile specialist, Rinspeed, can travel on land and “swim” on water and “swim” underwater.

This underwater car uses three electric engines that uses rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. It is environmentally friendly as it produces no exhaust emissions and stores hydropower. The eye-catching vehicle uses state-of-the-art waterproof fabrics and elegant materials to produce a functional yet sexy design.

My main apprehension? How to keep myself dry if I were to steer it into the depths of Marina Bay with such a topless car.

Other highlights:

  • Launch of Honda CB1000R and DN-01

  • Artworks of Darren Argaet, Australian Artist

  • Car Driving Stunts ( reverse spin, hand brake parking, parallel parking, synchronised car dance routine, autotest competition, cars on two wheels and drifting / do-nuts using 2 STi Subarus.)

  • South East Asia Bike Design Competiton

  • Trade Exhibitions

After the F1 buzz is over, race down Marina Bay to catch more motoring action at the Singapore Motorshow 2008 in Suntec City Convention Centre.
