Meet Atoy Llave, the man responsible for Toy Bodykits and its company's aftermarket exterior designs that's well loved and well applauded by Filipino car lovers makes another impressive creation that can leave anyone in awe. Llave created the Salamander amphibious trike.
"I want to show the world that the Filipino can," - Atoy Llave to TopGear
The Salamander has two powerplant choices: one electric and one internal-combustion. Boasting a six-person seating capacity (four in water), the amphibious tricycle is powered by either a 5kW electric engine or a 250cc gasoline motor. We assume these are the target specs for the production version, because the provisional spec sheet still mentions a 3kW electric engine and a 200cc motor. - TopGear
"I've already achieved so much in the car business," Llave shared. "Now, I want to leave behind a legacy. I want to produce something that will help people." - Atoy Llave

It will be a shame if Filipinos ignores another bright invention like this one, Not just a car or a vehicle, The Salamander may be the answer to the ongoing problems on Philippine transportation.
