Trippel was born on 19 July 1908 in the Darmstadt area and died 30 July 2001, possibly in Berlin. In 1934 he embarked upon a career as a racing driver.
In retrospect he is better remembered for the development of amphibious motor vehicles.
Also noteworthy is his membership of the quasi-military SA.
As an active supporter of the German regime in 1940 when France was invaded by Germany, Trippel took over control of the Bugatti plant at Molsheim.
