Yup it’s a boat, and a mighty big (63ft long), expensive (around £2.5m) and fast (60 knots, or 70mph) one at that. A typical over-the-top Lambo then, and surely as wonderfully dramatic a sight cutting through the waves as its automotive inspiration is blasting down the autostrada.
That inspiration is said to come from the limited-edition Sián FKP 37, the first hybrid car from Sant'Agata. While there is no electrification here – just a pair of dirty great V12 diesel engines – the car’s influence is plain to see. Seats, steering wheel, use of carbon-fibre, dashboard graphics, colour and trim all originate with the cars, as does the abundance of hexagonal design motifs.
It’s all the work of Lamborghini’s Centro Stile design studio and the luxury motor yacht specialists the Italian Sea Group, which is building the boat under its Tecnomar brand. You’d think there could not be much design in common between car and yacht but between them they seem to have conjured up a shape every bit as jaw-dropping as the cars. It looks like a Lambo.
