    If I was was riding it ---I would like it. If somebody else was riding it I would throw rocks and insults at him.

    I like it a little; not 40K worth.

    This would be perfect for me as I carry PWC and a trailbike but not $40k perfect....just wait a couple years and pick one up used at half price.

    Even half the price would seem to be more than twice what it's worth.

    A new ~150 hp PWC is about $11-12k and a new bigger ATV is about $10k.
    My reasonable thought for this being a one passenger and 2wd shouldn't be more than $18-$20k new.
    But they want $40k..so thats what it will be.

    Mind boggling when you think what cars or nice boats you can buy for the same price as this thing...

    Would beach protection anti-ATV regulations curtail it's use?

    If you look closer it has the hull of a speed boat and some tricky suspension,.

    No I dont know what it does but its a bit more than a 10,000 dollar kids dune buggy and it has at least 5 beverage holders, something James Bonds Aston would aspire to.

    Its gotta have some rockets N stuff for 40k They would sell well in New york today.

    looks like fun. Price is way too high to sell very many, it would be heavy from having two drives on it, so it would need a large engine to make it perform good. Lots of parts and complex mechanisums to maintain and repair, likely to be troublesome at least untill they get their productions numbers up and work out any reliablity problems. Of course at that price they will likely never sell very many.

    Ive just woken up to the threads point here 40,000 dollars!!!

    And them some one said 10,000 dollars --and me too without realizing I can buy one of these for 1000 dollars in the supermarket at Amorn under the dot com computer supply building.

    Not identical but a dune buggy all the same.
