December 7, 2007 Earlier this week we reported on a planned record attempt by Sealegs to become the fastest amphibious vehicle in the World on water - a goal which the company achieved earlier today at speeds of more than 100kmh (62mph).

The record run took place in near perfect conditions at Rose Bay in Sydney, Australia, with the amphibious craft racing across 500m of water in under 18 seconds, hitting a top speed of 105kph. More images in the gallery.
