The World's Only Boat Worthy Of Being Named 'Lamborghini' Sports Two Historic Engines

This was Ferruccio Lamborghini's boat.

When it comes to boats, we tend to appreciate them from afar. But sometimes a boat's car connections are ignored, such as this wonderfully restored Riva Aquarama. It was ordered by Ferruccio Lamborghini, the founder of Lamborghini. The original Aquarama was powered by two V8 engines, but this boat packs two V12s originally found in the 350GT. That was the first engine ever put into a Lamborghini production car.

We covered the GT350 in our “Grand Touring Icons” series, so we won’t get into too much detail about it. As for the boat, it’s been lovingly restored to its original condition. Although the engines are old they’re still good for a top speed of 48 knots (55 mph), a bump from the twin-V8’s top speed of 40 knots (46 mph). No sale price is listed, but if you have to ask then you probably can’t afford it. For those who fall into that category (likely everyone who reads this) there’ always awesome pictures to ogle and enjoy.
