Car of the Century
Gibbs Technologies founder and CTO New Zealander Alan Gibbs, 70, is profiled on Michigan Live.com where the entrepreneur discusses the never-seen-before capabilities of his three-seat sportscar Aquada, production of the Quadski and his partnership with businessman Briton Neil Jenkins who is chairman and CEO of Gibbs Technologies. “There’s just millions of places people will find the cars useful, as well as fun,” Gibbs says about the company’s High Speed Amphibious vehicles. Gibbs officials said the U.S. military is clamouring for the company to begin production of the military vehicle that will use its amphibious technology. “We really can’t work fast enough to meet that interest,” said Jenkins. Having recently opened the company’s headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Gibbs is enjoying creating a vehicle he believes could change the automotive landscape. Since 1999 he has been resident in the United Kingdom and lives in London on the Thames.
