Wheels up! Morph from car to boat in just seconds in the new WaterCar

NEW YORK (WABC) -- It's not every day you see a car at a boat show, but the Panther WaterCar is the exception.

In this vehicle, you can start your engine and drive straight into the water. You are cruising at up to 45 mph in just 15 seconds, wheels up!

You can do pretty much anything in this luxury amphibious vehicle that you would do in a boat.

Enjoy water skiing, go tubing, fishing, or just cruise around with your friends and family.

Drive right onto the sand with precision and speed.

If you want one for yourself, prices start at $139,000. Specialized custom versions cost more.

You can check the WaterCar out for yourself at the New York Boat Show at the Javits Center.

You can learn about boating careers and living the boating life at the 113th Progressive Insurance New York Boat Show.

Kids are welcome at the show and the whole family can try out the new "Touch-a-Boat" tour!
