The bright yellow paint job (2006 Corvette Velocity Yellow, to be exact), ability to morph from car to boat and ‘80s-era “futuristic” aesthetic make it a dead ringer for said Transformer. Tell me you wouldn’t buy a ticket to a movie where a robot pops out of this thing.

According to the auction listing, the HydroCar took 10 years to build, which makes sense when you get into the nitty gritty. The engine isn’t simply a 572-cubic-inch Chevrolet World Merlin, it’s also “chromed in true show-car tradition.” The transmission isn’t some stock joint, it’s a one-of-one, purpose-built Quadzilla 4L80E four-speed.
