Lamborghini has built a 4,000hp luxury yacht to rule the seas
It's not just got one V12 engine, it's got two...
You may see this Lamborghini-branded superyacht and think it's unique and the first of its kind but you will probably be surprised to know that this sort of thing has been done before.
Other car manufacturers such as, Aston Martin, Mercedes and Lexus have attempted this in the past but no one really bought them. Will this one be any different?
This Lamborghini luxury yacht is a limited edition boat called the Tecnomar and is inspired by the 2020 Lamborghini Sian FKP 37 which is one of the world's most ridiculous looking cars. It also happens to be Lamborghini's first hybrid car, if and when it comes out. Lamborghini have partnered with The Italian Sea Group to make this project possible.
Like the Sian, the Tecnomar uses a V12. But not one, but two monstrous V12s. These are Twin MAN V12 engines which produce 2,000 horsepower each, which results in a mind boggling 4,000 hp in total. With all this power, the Tecnomar can reach speeds of up to 60 knots.
In order to make this possible, Lamborghini have made the yacht completely out of carbon fiber. It measures 63 feet long and weighs in at 24 tons, which puts it in the ultra-lightweight boat classification.
Lamborghini says the hull and the superstructure were created using a high-performance shell, which was developed by naval engineers specializing in hydrodynamic sciences. The hardtop roof is inspired by Lamborghini roadsters and the bow lights were inspired by the Terzo Millennio and the Sian. You can see this in the photos, especially at the rear.
Inside, (if you're rich enough to be allowed to enter) you can customize the cabin through Lamborghini's Ad Personam program. This means you can have it exactly how you want it. The steering wheel and gauges are even designed to look like the cockpit of a Lamborghini supercar or a fighter jet cockpit. In fact, the starter button is the exact same one used to start any modern Lamborghini.
Only 63 examples will be built with the first one shipping (no pun intended) at the beginning of 2021. No price has been revealed yet but you can almost guarantee you won't be able to afford it. And if you have to ask, you definitely can't afford it.
