Capable of a nippy 40km/h on land (given its bulk), the wheels retract and an onboard motor propels the houseboat up to 16 knots (30km/h) on water. Once afloat, electric cells power onboard lights and temperature control, with a 3.6m x 1.2m interior sleeping two in relative comfort.

I am trying to promote this project at the moment and hopefully get a job off the back of it some day. If you could post it on Broadsheet it would be great.
Say no more, Henry.
From the video description:
Exo is an electric off-road vehicle for recreational use on dirt, sand and gravel. The aim of the project is to merge man and machine providing a deeply immersive driving experience. The vehicle leans during cornering connecting body motion to vehicle motion and allows a higher maximum cornering speed. The birdcage frame is fabricated from Aluminium tubing. Power comes from a 10kW DC brushless motor run from a Lithium Ion Battery pack.
