History:
The Ferrari Hydroplane was the brainchild of Achille Castoldi, who designed a racing boat for Enzo Ferrari, in order to beat the speed of the Lamborghini boats.
The Ferrari Hydroplane was built in the 1950s at the famous Timossi shipyard in Azzano on Lake Como in Italy.
The engine, a 4.5 l V12 that produced 502 hp, achieved a speed record of more than 150 mph on Lake Iseo. To this day, this is still the record for a boat of 800 kg.

This model has been handmade out of various types of wood, such as teak and mahogany.
The detailing has been done with stainless steel, brass and leather etc.
The model has been finished with several layers of high gloss varnish.

Includes a stand to display the model.
