Riva Aquarama Lamborghini

In the power boat world the designs of Carlo Riva are some of the most reverred in the world. His most famous design was the Aquarama, a gorgeous day boat, ideal for cruising the Italian lakes or making runs from Monte Carlo to Saint Tropez.

Most Aquarama's were powered by modified American V8s, usually from Cadillac or Chrysler, but this obviously would not do for Ferrucio Lamborghini when he ordered his Aquarama in the 1968. Instead his Aquarama was powered by two Lamborghini V12 engines as seen in the Miura. Now that boat has been painstaking restored as shown in the video.

This would not be the last time Lamborghini V12s woul be used in marinised form as Lamborghini engines have been heavily used in offshore powerboat racing winning multiple world championships.
