So you have seen the £5 million grenade-proof Rolls Royce Phantom, and sigh heavily, knowing that you would never be able to earn that kind of crazy money this lifetime in order to bring home such a ride. Well, if you happen to have just a small fraction of £5 million, I am sure that $100,000 is not too much to ask? That is because this is the asking price for the Killer Whale Submarine, and you can ride around underwater, feeling as though you were the deadly mammalian predator who hunts seals for your meals. I don’t think that you are able to perform the athletic feats and tricks of an actual orca, but at least it looks like one from afar. As the pilot, you will be protected under its watertight 0.5″-thick acrylic canopy that pushes and pulls twin control levers in order to articulate the whale’s pectoral fins for rolls and stealthy dives.
Steering is made possible thanks to dual foot pedals which will be able to control the vectored thrust of the craft’s 255-hp supercharged Rotax axial flow engine. The Killer Whale Submarine has a cruising speed of up to 25 mph when submerged, where its dorsal fin’s integrated snorkel makes sure you have adequate air supply up to a depth of 5′ for the engine. On the cockpit’s dashboard, you will find a speedometer, tachometer, engine and air pressure gauges, and an LCD display.
