Record Setting Ferrari Hydroplane 'Arno XI' Goes on Auction

Feb 21 2012

A beautiful gem of the 1950's! To top it off, it set the world record on water in 1953. Experts are estimating that the final winning bids are to be between $1.32 - $2 million dollars.

When the vessel reached 241.7 km/h on Lake Iseo in Northern Italy - it was an instant world record.

The boat boasted a 4.5L V12 engine out of the Type 375 Grand Prix with a dual supercharger setup. This gave the boat the final thrust it needed to overcome forces of nature.

It has been meticulously maintained and the future owner will not be displeased with the preservation of this piece of history.
