Remember the Gibbs Aquada, which launched - literally - in the UK in September? Which made quite an, er, splash in the world's papers when Richard Branson bought one? Well, we're happy to report that we'll soon get to see an Indian amphibious vehicle, thanks to a tie up between Hindustan Motors, and Chinkara Cars. And since Chinkara's first car, the Chinkara 1.8S, already has some pretty high profile customers, you might just see one of them zooming off the Gateway of India one of these days and taking the short cut to his beach house.
Also happy to report that Shama and Guido Bothe, the people behind Chinkara Cars (and FOTB) are "Leading the show stealers" at Auto Expo 2004 in Delhi.
