Oh sure — this'll end well. An amphibious jeep based on a 1996 Suzuki Samurai? We'd rather brave the seas atop a screen door pulled behind Lyndon Johnson's old Amphicar. Now, now, that was Tim Dutton's old-model amphibious vehicle — and he's been at it as long as we've been alive. The UK's AutoExpress water-tested one of his newer models, the Commander S2, which is based on a Suzuki Jimny (an updated Samurai sold in the UK) and has a monocoque structure made of glass reinforced plastic (GRP). So how does it fare on water? Better than a screen door, it would seem.
