What can one say? Really.. I am speechless

What can one say? Really.. I am speechless

This is one of those stories where there is really no need to write any copy. Ya look at the pictures and even your imagination is stunned.   Well… Thanks to long time fellow Woody boater Sandro Zani and the good folks at Riva World in Holland of the Lamborghini Riva we get to share with you more photos and a very nice video. So sit down, take a deep breath, and enjoy.






As if these insane photos arn’t enough….

    I for one can’t get enough of that boat.

    I have never understood why Riva’s comand so much $, but I think I am starting to get it.

      I think there is no engine hatch or sun pad because, if there were, those engines would not get enough air. Imagine all those carbs gasping for air under a hatch. They might create such a vacuum the boat would implode. Now that would be a video!!

    As for the name. “Lamborghini.” Really? C’mon. As romantic as you Italians are, surely you could have named it after some goddess, like Isabella or Monica.

    Or the owner could have named it after a spouse, like this guy did.

    Sandro – another outstanding restoration!!

    2 questions – do you know why Lamborghini had the Junior style grab handles/ vents installed? Also – why he selected a Aquarama versus Super Aquarama hull? I would have guessed he might have opted for the Super for more engine compartment room.

    Obviously a great story today chaps but the highlight is that photo that Alex posted. Very funny.

    Wow, 12 pairs of Webers, a mechanics dream? or nightmare to sync.

    and a fantastic video but only 5 seconds of motor sounds and the background music was what??? at least it should have been Andrea Bocelli singing in the background.

    Below is probably the closest I’ll ever get to a Lambo that is if I can come across one in a cotton field here down south.

    12 Webers would be a challenge, but not really too bad.

    I suspect that the reason the rear hatch / cover was not installed was two fold – the first to show off the engine beauty and the second being that a petrol fire could be detected quicker!! More than a few Lamborghinis have gone up in flames.

    The thing I love about the Italians is that they are capable of so much design beauty while being just plain ballsy about it all – and at the same time, not thinking everything through. Proof? Take the Lambo pic below. Flashy and yes the Coppers could easily catch any speeding scofflaw, but then EXACTLY what are the proud officers going to do once they catch the bugger?? The boneheads possess a car minus a backseat so they would no doubt either take the bribe or be forced to wait for the backup Fiat Panda to show up.
