Watercar Panther

Since seeing the scene in The Spy Who Loved Me when Roger Moore's Lotus Esprit turned into a submarine, we've dreamed of our own amphibious car. And, even though it's no submersible, the Watercar Panther ($135,000) is the next best thing — a car that's comfortable on the land and the water. At a weight of 3,000 pounds, and sporting a 3.7 liter V-6 VTEC Honda engine, it's capable of land speeds of 80-plus mph. A waterproof fiberglass hull and water jet engine lets it do over 40 on the water. Not to mention it's a capable off road vehicle. That's enough to make even 007 jealous.

  • Land Rover Defender LXV Special Edition

    For those of you that aren't down with Roman numerals, LXV stands for 65. As in, 65 years of Land Rover. In celebration of this milestone, the venerable 4x4 maker is releasing the Land Rover Defender LXV Special Edition ($TBA). Based on the standard Defender, it features a 2.2L diesel engine, 6-speed manual transmission, 16-inch Sawtooth alloy wheels, and a black or white paint job with a contrasting gray roof, grille, headlight surround, and fascia. Inside, you'll find leather seats with LXV embossed on the headrests and orange contrast stitching. No word yet on a stateside release.

    You'd surely need to jump through some hoops to get your hands on one, but if you're looking for the ultimate off-road-capable stuff carrier, the Mercedes-Benz Unimog ($TBA) is worth a look. Completely redesigned, the new Unimog is available in a dizzying ten different models, all of which offer features like a lower center of gravity, high ground clearance, axle articulation of up to 30°, LED headlights, improved cabins with greater visibility, multifunction steering wheels, and a tire inflation system that lets you choose the appropriate pressure for the terrain.
