They do not stop there, they returned to innovate by creating the cruising vehicles, ie Phibian and Humdiga II as the high-speed Amphitrucks. Body of the two vehicles with four-wheel drive were made from carbon material. So as to move fast  on land and water, their weapon is the twin turbo diesel engine.
