Riva Aquarama; just like a lamborghini but for the water.
When we think ‘Lamborghini’ automatically we associate it with land, expensive, luxury and fast.
Well take out land and replace it with water and you have yourself a Lamborghi
The speedboat hid away from the world for a number of years in 1993, until recently when it underwent a restoration project for three years – with an apparent 25 coats of lacquer applied to the wooden hull.
The Lamborghini Riva Aquarama was inspired by the automobile Lamborghini and was developed from 1962 to 1996.
Carlo Riva and Ferrucio Lamborighini are responsible for the new life of luxury speedboats, they both were full of passion, drive and and eye for success in the fields they were in.
To create the best they joined forces in early 1968 to work on a new Riva Aquarama.
Fitted with Lamborghini V12’s specifically modified for marine use by the Lamborghini factory.
The Riva Aquarama has two 4.0 litre V12 engines that powered the 350GT – which was the first Lamborghini ever built.
Ferruccio Lamborghini ordered Riva to customise the design and build the exhaust system with open pipes.
This wonderful Lamborghini inspired speedboat could reach a top speed of 48 knots, which is considerably faster than a standard Aquarama 40 knot top speed.
