With a motorhome of class to new shores, people need hobbies. Finally, the time on Earth wants to be usefully spent. Similar might have thought the couple John and Julie Giljam and shot out a little bit about the target. The two Americans built a 13-metre-long camper named Terra wind. But to impress the vehicle with its 18 tonnes unladen weight not only in the country. Necessary it can also swim. The Internet portal auto.de presents the unconventional project. Boy Scouts of America has firm opinions on the matter.

Comfort there is likely no shortage wind aboard the Terra. As the magazine reported, the Interior with fine marble floors and tasteful leather seats is equipped. Not to mention the own swimming platform at the rear of the vehicle. Because who controls his motorhome unabated in the floods, will enjoy not only the looks of passers-by. Also lack of parking on the banks are no longer a problem. After all, can be from the Terra wind directly on the Lake. And should you like the driver there, he can remain even a whole while. Because on board a Terra wind is a 415 Litre fresh water tank.

The maximum speed at sea is only 13 km/h, for other water vehicles are true probably respectful distance. The background work contributes a caterpillar turbo diesel with a displacement of 7.2 litres and 330 HP. With him, the Terra reached wind on land at least 135 km/h. The purchase price for such a Luxusmobil is 850,000 dollars. Whether admission in Germany is possible, remained unclear so far.

Rather surprisingly are ultra high strength steels even better than aluminum, but offer a limited field of application. In recent years, in particular steel, aluminum have in terms of the structural parts of vehicles and some magnesium fought to the best contribution for lightweight construction. Here were the material manufacturers with large concept studies (E.g. the InCar study by Thyssen) very active and could initialize so many new applications.

Toyota put its three clientele in the absolute focus of his actions. Interestingly the internal customers and suppliers would according to the necessary needs of the buying customer aligned and treated and paid: the result is first and foremost an extremely high customer satisfaction and loyalty at all three levels.
