Lifted out for a Hull Inspection

Not For Sale ! - Built 45 years ago for and commissioned by Ferruccio Lamborghini, founder of the Italian sports car brand, the fastest Aquarama in the world has been fully restored to its original condition.The restoration project took around three years in total. During this time Sandro Zani, owner of the well-know Dutch Riva restorer Riva World travelled to Italy on a regular basis, including visits to the Ferruccio Lamborghini Museum, in order to document all the details and elements of the original, before beginning the extensive restoration.

The wooden hull was repaired, sanded and no fewer than 25 coatings were applied – the world’s fastest Aquarama thanks to its twin 350 hp 4.0 V12 engines.The result: two Lamborghini 4.0 V12s, each with 350hp and equipped with six twin Weber carburetors (twelve in total) with a rev range between 700 and 5,000 rpm and a formidable torque that through various adjustments to the engines, including increased bore and longer stroke, is already available from around 1,500 revs. Together they give the Riva Aquarama Lamborghini a top speed of around 48 knots, compared to 40 knots for regular Aquaramas that Riva fits with twin V8 units as standard equipment.
