Conte presented the Conte Schwimmwagen at Frankfurt in 1979, powered by a 135hp Ford engine.

From the brochure.
For the Conte amphibious car, there are no borders at rivers, seas or coasts.

Even at low depth of water, the car swims and the drive goes on. The hydraulic twinscrew system with power steering gives sufficient speed to the car also in string flow in rivers.

The steering in the water is operated by the front wheels now freely standing and the twinscrews.

The landing and continuous driving is easy with the differential pawl built into every car - a short braking to dry the disk and drum brakes - and the drive goes on over land as in a normal vehicle.
