Concorso D'Eleganza Villa D'Este 2010

Amphicars & Co

A very special attraction on Saturday were four Amphicars, and a VW Type 166 "Schwimmwagen".

Guests were able to find out how it feels to ship around in a car.

To maneuver in the small port, the captain even uses a paddle...

Every time, when the Amphicars came out of the water, they had the challenge to climb up the steps.

The VW 166 was able to do that much more easy, due to the fact that it is a 4WD.

That way, it wasn't so spectacular to climb up the ramp at the Hotel Villa D'Este.
