The Arno XI was built to the order of Achille Castoldi by the Timossi yard on Lake Como in 1951 in order to achieve a record speed for the class. Enzo Ferrari was persuaded to provide a 4.5 litre V12 engine which, when twin superchargers were added, generated an astonishing 502bhp which drove the boat to 150.19mph in October 1953 - a record which still stands for an 800kg boat. The boat was recently sold at auction in Monaco 12 May 2012 for 868,000 Euro.
