Over the next few months here on Audi Blog you will see me broadening the variety of articles as I turn my focus to include lifestyle and other subjects targeted towards Audi drivers Male and Female as well as young and old, readership has been increasing steadily over the last year and hopefully you will continue to enjoy reading, if so please feel free to pass comment at the bottom of each post (Good or Bad) so that I can get some feel for what you all enjoy to read.
With this in mind, in this article I am rather looking forward to talking about something that most of us would love a crack at but only a few will be in the market to actually own.
If you fancy yourself as a US navy seal or even a deep sea exploration adventurer, you could now be a proud owner of a new 3-Seater Personal Submarine from the Dutch Company Ortega. Specifically designed for the US Special Force this vessel comes in at just over 21ft in length and is powered by 2 electric units, unfortunatley the price is yet to be announced.
The vessel comes standard with trimming tank, HUD navigation, and on-board breathing mechanism. Options can include magnetometers or sonar, FLIR imaging systems, extra air supply, or an extended cargo hold of up to 250 liters. The battery packs give the Mk. 1C a range of up to 90 miles and speeds of either 10 mph on the surface or 12 mph underwater.
This personal submersible reaches depths of 310feet for those adventurous souls amongst you, couple that with the fact that you have an open cockpit you should get nice and close to the sunken treasure you are looking for.
