The Panther's chassis was designed to slip into a fibreglass hull - similar to those used on Formula 1 cars.

The hull is also filled with closed-cell styrofoam to help the car stay afloat.

The engine for the Panther is the latest-generation Acura 3.7-liter VTEC V-6 engine, custom-fitted with aluminium parts, a overhead camshaft cylinder head and 24 valves.

Both intake and exhaust valves are controlled by Acura's Variable valve Timing and lift Electronic Control (VTEC) system.

This engine produces 305 horsepower at 6,300 rpm and on land the Panther can reach speeds of around 80mph.
