The history of RIVA motorboats from 1842 to the present day…
“Designed with love, born strong and pure as a purebred horse. Unforgettable! My lord of the sea”
Riva and Lamborghini
The Riva Aquarama is considered one of the greatest motorboats in the world, and even Ferruccio Lamborghini, well-known owner of one of the most important Italian car industries, was attracted by this marvel of the sea, and decided to buy one as long as, in agreement with Eng. Carlo Riva, it was equipped with two Lamborghini V12 engines.
Riva and Ferrari
In 2016 Riva approached road racing too, as the official sponsor of the Ferrari team in the Formula 1 World Championship. On the helmets of drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen made its appearance the Riva logo, with its typical aquamarine color.
It was the return of an unrivaled binomial, the encounter of two mythological entities, together in the circuits and in the seas as in the Nineties when they worked together on the Riva Ferrari 32 and the Riva Ferrari 32 special.
