Pegaso 3550 It is smaller than a DUKW, but it has the looks. ;-)
Pegaso 3550 In the water it is been driven by two water jets mounted behind the rear axle.
It can turn on a dime and can move backwards at an impressive speed.

Even with a big leak it will not go down fast, the hull is divided into watertight compartments and it has 2 x 6000 l/h pumps and 2 x 3600 l/h automatic bilge pumps.

The engine compartment is at the rear with the air outlet/inlet louvres and exhaust pipe mounted in the top.

Update:
2 incompleet vehicles are in Germany and are being very slowly restored.
