Boat Ferruccio Lamborghini – Riva Aquarama
Everyone knows that Lamborghini produces some of the most impressive supercars in the world, but the true fans as well versed in other types of vehicles bearing the logo with a ferocious bull. Tractor, for example, which Ferruccio began his career, and yet the company has adapted its twelve-cylinder engine for use on the water.
Over the years, Lamborghini engines have brought a lot of trophies to participants of water races, but before that came to light a ship that you see in these pictures. 278th of 769 released in the period between 1962 and 1996, the Riva Aquarama was ordered by Ferruccio Lamborghini. She went to the shipyard in 1968, complete with a pair of four-liter V12 engine from the Lamborghini 350 GT.
After his death in 1993, the only one of its kind Riva Aquarama Lamborghini faded into obscurity, hiding from the world under a tarp until it was tracked down and restored the Dutch collector Sandro Zani. The project lasted for three years.
Although the company museum was not ready to sell one of the original engines, the curators allowed the team to make it out to recreate a couple of other parts of the original motor from GT 350 to the same condition. As a result, each motor squeezes 350 horsepower, vessel type allowing maximum speed of 48 knots (to ground rat – 88 km / h).
As you can see from the pictures, Riva Aquarama is one of the most beautiful classic ships, and perhaps one of the most attractive Lamborghini on land or water.
