Living by the beach I’ve seen a handful of people be rescued by lifeguards, & I always wonder why the lifeguard system doesn’t invest in a single water-to-land vehicle rather than… take the pickup to the shore, to launch the jet-ski, to swim, & rescue the person. It seems a lot more practical right? Inspired by the 1940s Volkswagen Type 166, designer Sebastian Toddenroth came up with this amphibious Volkswagen Beach Rescue rover to make lifeguards’ jobs a tad easier and rescues a lot quicker.
What better brand to represent this concept than the reliable Volkswagen? This concept gives lifeguards the ability to move seamlessly from water to land, & allows them to perform omnidirectional maneuvers for increased agility and time efficiency.
