Legendary cars reinvented in floating form


A startup presented an ambitious project that involves reinventing some of the automotive icons of the automotive world into floating vehicles. This concept is the work of designer Pierpaolo Lazzarini, who plans to sail on the water models of cars like the Fiat 500 and the Mini Cooper in the form of small boats, catamarans or hydrofoils.

The Floating Motors concept consists of reproducing any car model in floating form. Instead of the wheels, the startup offers the choice between two floating systems, a catamaran version with two hulls or a hydrofoil with wings allowing the ship to “fly” on the water.

For the moment, five models have been created by the company, based on cult vehicles like the Fiat 500 (Dolce) or the Mini Cooper (Mini Mare).

The company is not ruling out any options for its upcoming projects, with even the Mercedes-Benz 300 SL or the famous Volkswagen Kombi bus.

In theory, each model will have different engine power, depending on the specifications of the car in question. Currently, the choice is between a conventional heat engine and an all-electric motor, with powers ranging from 20 horsepower to 270 horsepower among the first models programmed.

For the moment, all of this is still at the draft stage. Each vehicle would require eight to 12 months of preparation. Prices are currently advertised between $ 30,000 and $ 220,000 (1.5 million pesos to 11.2 million pesos). JB
