This second article gives better space and importance to this truly unique one-off Riva Aquarama. The stunning boat was owned by the one and only Ferruccio Lamborghini.
The most beautiful Italian boat features two 350GT V12 Lamborghini’s engines.
Riva Aquarama - Ex Ferrucio Lamborghini 1968’. No. 278 was ordered in May 1968 by Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder of the Italian sports car company that bears his name. It took three months to build and Lamborghini didn’t just sit back and wait for his boat to show up. Dissatisfied with the standard V8 engine, he took a pair of 350 bhp 4.0 V12 Lamborghini engines from the @lamborghini 350 GT and adapted them. This made it not only the fastest Aquarama ever built, but an Aquarama with the heart of a Lamborghini. Ferruccio insisted he could take it out on the water by August, so over a period of three months the highly skilled workers at the Riva boatyard had to work night and day to get hull 278 finished in time.
