VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. – The Gibbs Quadski, the world’s first production fast amphibian, proved its worth as a rescue vehicle by recording its first “official” water rescue during the 2014 United States Lifesaving Association Lifeguard Championships.
What’s it like to drive the Gibbs Quadski XL? In our first opportunity to really spend some time on the world’s first production fast amphibian – in this case the two-seat version – we found that the vehicle is surprisingly maneuverable for its size.
It’s been said that the first car races happened shortly after the earliest cars were rolled out of their garages. Would you expect any different with fast amphibians such as the Gibbs Quadski?
The story behind Gibbs’ High Speed Amphibians is one that has been created by teams across the globe. In fact, company leaders say Gibbs’ use of technology leaders across the continents is really at the core of what it has created.
