The Amphicar Model 770 is an amphibious automobile, and in 1961 the first one mass-produced. The German vehicle was designed by Hans Trippel and manufactured by the Quandt Group at Lübeck and at Berlin-Borsigwalde. Its name is a contraction of “amphibious” and “car”. The Amphicar 770 was designed to be marketed and sold mainly in the USA. When new the Amphicar 770 sold for around $3000 but today because of their uniqueness and rarity they are highly valued and sought after by collectors and historic car enthusiasts and on the rare occasion one goes to auction a good example can sell for $75,000.
