The VS335 could support three divers for about an hour, or one for three hours, and it cost US$4,145.

Each year, the SEMA Show creates a nice, clean split of insane, otherworldly vehicles. We looked at the 2018 cars of the show last week, and this week we dive into the trucks, utility vehicles, vans and basically anything that looks big, boxy and tough.
