Classic motorboats such as these were manufactured by makers such as Riva Wikipedia - Riva Aquarama Wikipedia - Riva Link - Riva Historical Link - Riva GB Link - Riva Boats, Chris-Craft Wikipedia - Chris Craft, and Hacker Wikipedia - Hacker and were powered by engines drawn from the most powerful sports cars of their day. Sadly Chris-Craft stopped making mahogany hulled boats in 1971.

 

In 1969, Ferruccio Lamborghini Wikipedia - Ferruccio Lamborghini, proprietor of sports car manufacturer Lamborghini Wikipedia - Lamborghini, had the Bizzarrini-designed Wikipedia - Giotto Bizzarrini 4 liter V12 engine from the Lamborghini Espada Wikipedia - Lamborghini Espada fitted to his own Riva Aquarama Wikipedia - Riva Aquarama. The same engine was then fitted to a Riva Super Aquarama for the offshore race across the Adriatic from Cervia Wikipedia - Cervia to Pola Wikipedia - Pula in Istria Wikipedia - Istria with Ferruccio Lamborghini himself at the throttle. Ferruccio Lamborghini had Aldo Cicero Wikipedia - design for him another boat, which was named the Quetzal or »Cigar«. The boat was fitted with a Lamborghini LM series V12 block bored to 8 liters and with this, Motori Marini Lamborghini S.p.A was born and soon became a force in marine engine manufacture.. In 1984 Ferruccio Lamborghini commissioned Giulio Alfieri Wikipedia - Giulio Alfierito to design a new marine V12 for offshore powerboat racing. This latter LM series engine has dominated offshore powerboat competition in succeeding decades.
