This is a superb Vintage model of a Ferrari Hydroplane 1954, late 20th Century in date.

Ferrari's cars are adored on all corners of the globe and are seen as the ultimate status symbol for the rich and powerful.

But as these incredible pictures show, Ferrari is not just a talented car manufacturer. This astonishing-looking Ferrari speedboat set an unrivalled world record in 1953 and is valued in the millions.

The legendary ARNO XI Hydroplane craft was the brainchild of wealthy boat privateer Achille Castoldi who had a desire to break a world water speed record.

He persuaded the great Enzo Ferrari to lend knowledge and technical assistance in building the ultimate powerboat. The result was a 12-cylinder, 4,500cc, V12 Ferrari engine - the same as can be found in the Type 375 Grand Prix car.
 
In October 1953, ARNO XI travelled at 150.2mph on Lake Iseo in northern Italy, setting a world speed record for an 800kg boat that has still never been broken.
When Mr Castoldi was finished with ARNO XI, it was sold to Nando dell'Orto, a rich engineer, who went on to race it with great success for more than 10 years, securing numerous wins.

The boat went through various aerodynamic improvements during that time, including a modified nose and the addition of a fin. It finished its competitive racing career in 1960 with a European championship victory and numerous fastest laps, many of which still exist.
