The SG-6 Trippelwagen was an unusual all-terrain amphibious car, adapted for German military use as a reconnaissance vehicle.
Hans Trippel designed the all-terrain four-wheeled drive amphibious car in 1935. His technique was to fit car mechanics into a boat hull rather than try to waterproof a car chassis. He set up a factory in Hamburg in 1936 under the patronage of Hermann Göring’s Luftwaffe. Production of a militarised vehicle for the Wehrmacht began in 1937. In 1939, a stretched version capable of carrying 16 troops went into production. From August 1940, the SG-6 was also produced by Bugatti in Alsace. It was designed for reconnaissance units.
Principal Service: 1939-1945.
Numbers manufactured: approx. 1,000
