“Hippo” Car Can Roll or Swim with Ten Passengers

Bridges might save time, but they’re not necessary to the German army’s new amphibian automobile. Carrying as many as eight or ten men, it can drive right off the road and “swim” across a lake or river at twelve miles an hour. Top speed on the highway is seventy-two miles an hour. From the front the car resembles a hippopotamus.
