Iveco make channel crossing - in a truck!

Iveco have completed an unusual journey using an experimental amphibious vehicle based on its Iveco Daily 4×4.

The Iveco Terramare has been used to successfully cross the Corsica Channel, which runs between Tuscany and Corsica, during a voyage which took almost 14 hours for the 75 nautical miles.

Modifications included an internally welded steel hull, a waterjet propulsion system and the mounting of supplementary
fuel tanks with a total capacity of 300 litres.

This allowed sufficient range to guarantee a successful sea crossing without the need to refuel, with the Iveco Terramare capable of a top speed on the road of 100kmh and 10kmh in the
water.
