Do Or Die, Santa: $2.4 Million 5-Person Luxury Sub 'Limo'
This is the U-boat Worx 'C Explorer 5' (U for underwater, C for sea, 5 for five passenger). It's a $2.5 million luxury submarine WITH AIR CONDITIONING AND LEATHER SEATS. And for you cheapskates trying to save a buck, no, pleather isn't an option. It's being billed as the first submarine limo even though that's ridiculous and it doesn't even have wheels.
The $2.4 million C-Explorer 5 is being advertised as the "world's first subsea limousine." It holds five people, has an air conditioning system, can dive down to 1,000 feet, and sports a full 360-degree acrylic pressure hull. Cruising speed is 3 knots underwater.
If the standard features aren't enough, you can add to the price tag with options like an iPod sound system, bow-mounted LED lights, a sampling arm, an HD video camera system, imaging sonars, or an underwater modem. Make your next scientific adventure a luxurious one.
Come on, there isn't even a mini-bar option? That makes for one CRAPPY limo if you ask me. I don't care if you can go on underwater mermaid viewing tours, I want to be drunk while I'm doing it. "Just bring a flask." Fine -- FINE.

Thanks to LupusYonderboy, who asked me to go halvsies with him so we could go find Atlantis. Atlantis, LOL -- there's no such thing! The Atlantans made me say that to ensure their privacy but I do know it's location and I'll take you there for a million dollars. We have to ride sharks though.
