This amazingly stylish Ferrari outboard is a racing boat built by Enzo Ferrari to break the 1953 world speed record on the water, a world record that is still unparalleled to this day.
The legendary device was the idea of billionaire Achille Castoldi to break the world speed record on the water. He convinced the great Enzo Ferrari to assist his project with the brand's technical knowledge.
The result is an 800kg car powered by a Ferrari V12 engine with 12 cylinders and 4500 cc, the same engine as in the Ferrari 375 Grand Prix.
In October 1953, the ARNO XI set the world speed record on Lake Iseo in Northern Italy. Then the car was sold to Nando dell'Orto,
a wealthy Italian engineer, who continued to use the ARNO XI in competition for more than 10 years, achieving many victories.
There have been aerodynamic improvements during this period, including on the nose and the addition of a fin.
A real object of exception, this 25 cm long model was made to a scale of 1/25th. Faithful replica of the mythical hydroplane, this model is entirely handmade from noble materials: Mahogany for wood and real marine upholstery. All fittings are made of chrome-plated brass and made to measure by jewellers. 5 coats of varnish are applied to obtain an excellent gloss and depth of varnish.
The model is delivered in a secure packaging with a numbered certificate of authenticity and a one-year guarantee.
