A car model traveling on both land and water goes under the hammer

A yellow 1967 Amphicar Model 770, which can travel on both land and water, is up for auction until the end of the week.

The amphibious vehicle was originally designed by the German Hans Trippel in 1959 and was unveiled at the New York Auto Show in 1961. Of the 3878 units produced, most were sold in the United States, where they were on sale until 1967. The four-seater convertible’s engine drives the rear wheels on land and two propellers on water. The car is steered by its front wheels and they also function as rudders under water.

Bids for the Amphicar Model 770 can be placed on Bring a Trailer until 15 August.
