The Fiat 1110 Boat Car, a boat on wheels

The Fiat 1110 Boat Car is not a true amphibious vehicle. It is better described as a dream-like boat on wheels. A bizarre mechanical hircocervus, never meant to sail across the seas, but to symbolize adventure with extravagance and humor. An odd car, parked on the dock like a small monument to travel by land and by sea.

The 1100 Boat Car – equipped with teak flooring, portholes, and lifesaver – was made in 1953 by Carrozzeria Coriasco in Turin for the “Scarani” Nautical School in Bologna.

A Boat Car to sail across the endless oceans of our imagination.
