Twin-Lamborghini-Powered Riva Aquarama

Motor Trend published an article in October on Ferruccio Lamborghini's twin V-12 powered Riva Aquarama. His goal was to have the fastest Riva in the world. The boat has been restored and the pictures and video in the article are stunning.

I know where about a dozen are lying around doing very little

Beautiful boat though

According the article I saw in WIRED the motors are rebuilds (borrowed from the factory) specifically for this boat (reversed rotation?).

I'll bet they have a very skinny mechanic with very long arms.
