Innovative conceptions inspired by biological organisms are not actually a new notion in the field of transportation. The ambitious project encompasses a concept marine vehicle for efficacious yet sustainable maneuvering under the water. Visually akin to a whale, the aesthetically pleasing demeanor of the mechanical contraption fuses well with its overall white-black color scheme. The naturalistic curvaceous bearing is accentuated by the unobtrusive, flowing design lines. But beyond the essence of visual allure, the conception does have some pretty useful features. As the name suggests, the vehicle will give a faster mode of transportation under water, with a rich user experience.
Coming to its fervently ‘green’ credentials, the power train of the marine craft will be composed of a special biogas engine with 800 hp capacity. The craft can itself refuel at unmanned stations; with the biogas being produced in self-sustaining water based metropolises. Coming to the maneuvering part, the body of the vehicle will be created out of a lightweight yet sturdy composite of molded carbon fiber and honeycomb construction. While the sleek structure (with just 928 kg weight) will certainly help in motional attributes, the water-jet driven steering will be improved by special rear flaps. Vehicle have a top speed of around 300 knots (with average speed of 120 knots).
