Re: Salamanda ?

Ahh its a "Scamander"

Looks a bit disappointing in action.
I thought maybe the wheels would fold up into those arches (Bond's lotus esprit) and then maybe jet propulsion(water jet) from the central tunnel.

Actually just a paddle boat. with front wheels as rudders.

Paddles also would have to be fitted just prior to taking to the water, and taken off before going back on the road.

A bladed/scythed wheel on yer chariot might have been usefull in roman times .It wouldnt be too popular with pedestrians or the local constabulary either


KHAAAAAN!

Re: Salamanda ?

While Id like to take credit for the "discovery " , it was actually
Salamanda ?

It was bothering me too !. Your sister in law's photo actually makes it look more like an exotic pre production model.
The google stuff is more "kit car".


KHAAAAAN!
