“Riva and Lamborghini, two iconic Italian names that need no introduction. Carlo Riva and Ferruccio Lamborghini both full of passion and extremely driven to create the best in their field, joined forces in May 1968 when Ferruccio ordered a new Riva Aquarama. This Aquarama would be fitted with a pair of Lamborghini V12’s modified for marine use by the Lamborghini factory, starting a second career for these fantastic engines. Riva custom designed and built the exhaust system with open pipes according to Ferruccio’s request.
A unique all Italian Riva Aquarama was born, hull number 278.”
