The Lucini Lamborghini Hydroplane, powered By An 8.2 litre Lamborghini V12 with a power output of 850 hp, was built by legendary Italian boatbuilder Lucini in 1992 for a Swiss businessman. He wanted to compete in the Centomiglia del Lario, a 100-mile race held on Lake Como.
The event compared with the Mille Miglia on water.
The hydroplane’s objective was to win, which it did in 1992,1993 and 1995; it also broke all existing speed records and held the unbeaten speed endurance record of 121.44 mph. The ‘plane’ has a top speed of around 143mph.
Lamborghini is still involved with high-performance boatbuilding. In association with the Italian Sea Group, they are selling the Lamborghini 63 by Tecomar, a limited edition designed and built to celebrate the year of Lamborghini’s founding and inspired by the Sián FKP 37, the first Lamborghini hybrid super sports car.
Fitted with twin 24.2-litre MAN V-12 diesel engines, the Lambo produces 2000 hp.
Additionally, Motori Marini Lamborghini S.p.A. operates a less well known marine offshoot, Motori Marini Lamborghini S.p.A. that specialises in V12 racing engines for use in the World Offshore Series Class 1 powerboat.
And, of course, Lamborghini still produce tractors!
