What you are looking at here is not front end of a supercar. It isn’t an alien spaceship with a thing for supercar either. It is a submarine. A U-Boat Worx personal sports submarine, to be precise, that will allow you to take on the water below the surface and move through it like a supercar. Obviously, in the case of the U-Boat Worx HiPer Sub, there’s no highway to stick to. The entire water below the surface IS one giant, three dimensional highway.
The unmistakable sports car form is hydrodynamic and driving it are six powerful thrusters, of which four are vectored-vertical thrusters that will allow the underwater pilot to execute rolls, loops and make crazy turns, vertical ascents and descents, while staying glued to the sport-style seats. Keeping the underwater vessel juiced are specially engineered low weight and long-lasting lithium-ion batteries, offering the power those angry thrusters demand.
This being a U-Boat Worx vessel, it comes with all necessary safety features that puts safety over everything else, so you can sure, whatever hydrobatic you pull off, you’d be doing in complete safety. Watch out for corals though because, I didn’t think it will be clever enough to avoid obstacles. Just saying… It also touts a sophisticate cockpit with fighter jet-like controls that let you take supervised control of the super-sub as if you are flying. I bet those aquatic animals will be green with envy.
U-Boat Worx is intentionally designed to compact and lightweight, so it could do what it touts it could do (i.e. insane maneuver) while still able to fit on board yachts to be transported. In fact, it is so compact that, it can even be launched directly from a car trailer. Yacht? Who needs a yacht? Two models are available: Hiper Sub 2, that accommodate two, and Hiper Sub 4, that has a capacity for up four person. Basically, the two are the same. They only differs mainly in seating capacity.
Whichever model you choose, you’d be getting up to 6 hours of underwater escapade, up to a maximum depth of 100 meters (328 feet) and slicing through the deep blue at speeds up to 6 knots (equivalent to around 11 km/h or about 7 miles an hour) and pulling hydrobatic without care (and admiring the vast underwater-scapes through the bubble shield).
As for the price, it is upon request and it also a hint for ask not to even ask. I would oblige to think it is the region of millions. I don’t know. If you want one, just shoot an inquiry over and I am sure U-Boat Worx will be quick to attend to your questions.
