For Sale: The World's Only Amphibious Lamborghini Countach

Strictly speaking, all Lamborghini Countaches are amphibious--for an extremely short period of time. But this one is built to last. 

It's actually a replica made to resemble an original Lambo. Mike Ryan, the founder of SeaRoader Amphibious Vehicles, built it for . . . well, why wouldn't you make such a thing, if you could?

It's now up for sale on eBay, priced at £18,995.00 ($27,035 USD). Road and Track describes it:

There's some astonishing engineering going on here. The four-wheel pushrod coilover suspension is fully adjustible, with hydraulics to compress the suspension and pull the wheels into the wheel wells for water travel. Also, it's got a smoke screen button. Yes, just like James Bond's Aston Martin.

As you'd expect with a one-off so delightfully bizarre, the Amphiborghini has led a strange and unusual life. Built as a right-hand drive for U.K. roads, it was at some point shipped to the U.S. and converted to left-hand drive, used in Hollywood, then returned to the U.K. and converted back to right-hand drive, as it sits today.
