A boat on the 'bahn: Amphicar


I've been going through some old photos from trips to Europe, putting up onto Flickr the ones I missed first time around. This one is of an Amphicar, the 1960s Triumph-engined German amphibious boat-auto hybrid.

Random fact: Hans Trippel, the designer of the Amphicar, was also responsible for the famous Mercedes Benz Gullwing doors!

It was quite a sight on the German Autobahn!
