Ferrari Arno XI Limited Edition (AM1610)
In the early ‘sixties, Nando Dell Orto the famous powerboat racer, decided to mount a 12 cylinder Ferrari engine on a 3 point hull designed by the Timossi shipyards for the 800 kg inboard class and built in 1953. the engine was specially prepared by Rinaldo Tinarelli, better known as the wizard. The hull structure, with solid wood formers and marine ply skin, was both flexible and strong enough to withstand the stresses of racing. The engine fairing and tail fin, painted Ferrari red with the famous prancing horse logo, soon became synonyms for sheer power.
