Horrible looks, and a horrible powertrain by the sounds of it.

What's in a name?

Not much looking at this Aqua car from a Gerry Anderson series wannabee.

It does rather look like a 50's attempt to be futuristic or a lame rendering of a design lifted from a Manga comic. There's a hint of bathtub about it too.

Uncool for me.

+ Rare sports car.

It looks like it should be amphibious but isn't (is it?). Uncool.

Depends where it is driven, decides if it is cool or not for me. I could drive that along the Thames embankment on a warm summers evening and up into the streets of Chelsea, where it would be sub zero.Therefore I have given it a "cool".

I agree with KB. Boaty looking thing. I gave it a 'Meh' I think.

Member car:

The train :(

My initial impression was that it was rather pretty but that the wheels need to be pushed out to the sides of the car, then I decided that its front end is a bit too bulbous and as HG says, if it had aquatic capabilities it would be great but I guess it doesn't. So it is uncool.

I also wanted to see its rear end and checked google images and i's Ok but there was a picture of a bloke driving one and the proportions made it look like a pedal car.

As demonstrated by this video, it's no surprise that it was shot coming down a hill. Kudos to the driver for keeping his upper body so still though
