Here’s a blurb:

An underwater car, based on a James Bond film, has been unveiled in Switzerland. The amphibious two-seater has been made from a Lotus Elise, with three electric motors replacing the petrol engine—one powers the back wheels, while the other two work the specially designed propellers.
