The Spira 4U is a car made of foam and uses eco-friendly plastics, and bamboo as a roll cage. Its construction uses much less resources than that of a traditional vehicle.
The Spira 4U, in its electric version, can travel up to 775 kilometers with a single 50KWh battery, according to the manufacturer, this would set a GuinnessWorld Record if the car were in production. In fact, they initially tried to manufacture it in the Philippines and Thailand without success, but it was eventually produced in China by Wangye Power Co. and later in the Philippines by Gerweiss Motor Co.
This car is very suitable for these countries, it's easy to repair, to manufacture and it's very affordable. Due to its high buoyancy, it allows you to cross rivers and obstacles, but you will need a paddle to do this. But here luxury is not sought, but practicality. It is a vehicle really suitable for underdeveloped countries where the presence of rivers can be an obstacle for people.
How about a luxury sports car-hovercraft? VonMercier combines cutting-edge hovercraft and hybrid electric vehicle innovation with luxury and high-performance technology to create a luxurious sports hovercraft.

It accomplishes this by driving on an air cushion and basically flying above the surface. The air cushion is hung in a flexible reinforced fabric skirt to help compensate for terrain changes and provide clearance for obstacles.
The innovative directional control system enables advanced maneuverability in forward, lateral and backward directions, so you can easily stop and move forward. The petrol engine is used to feed the three independent electric motors of the drive system.

It has great buoyancy and even offers a ski-combo package to go through the snow. In addition, the same vehicle offers a kind of tent to be protected from the elements and to camouflage yourself from the animals if your intention is to hunt. It's a really robust vehicle and it's a vehicle designed to go across on any terrain, but it performs especially well on ice.
