This submarine is totally killer. This is not a concept or design idea, you can actually buy a Killer Whale Submarine from Hammacher. This sub holds two people and breaches and submerges from the water just like an Orca whale. The sea was angry that day my friends, like an old man trying to send back soup at a deli. It’s powered by a 255hp Rotax axial flow engine and can hit 50mph skimming atop the water and 25mph underwater.
A pair of control levers let you do rolls and dives while dual foot pedals control the steering and thrust. If you owned this submarine you would be getting so much action they would call you Free Willie for two reasons. Hey is that an iPhone dock on the dashboard too? Sold! Really cool vehicle and I’m sure you’re already reaching for your credit card to buy one but first you probably want to know what the damage will be. Try $100,000. If you have to ask….
