AQUARIVA SUPER
Aquariva Super: a classic sportscar on water - uk.boats.com
Quote:
Officina Italiana Design, responsible for all of Riva’s concepts for the past 16 years developed this model in 2000, with naval architecture and engineering from AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology), Ferretti’s own in-house team of researchers. Final touches have come from Centro Stile Ferretti Group, and the result is a beautiful craft with a startling turn of speed. The price tag is around US$1,000,000, but there has been no shortage of takers. Riva has since built over 100 Aquariva Supers, with two recent limited edition variants, the Aquariva by Marc Newson, and the Aquariva by Gucci.

....................Sportscar styling
Riva originally styled its runabout models on big American cars, all the rage after the end of the Second World War, and traces of this obsession remain in the Super.





It's beautiful, but somehow expect something larger for a million dollars.

Gotta love Italian styling.

Shuttle mock up delivered to Space Center Houston. Not a real one, but still an interesting logistical effort...











And a couple shots of the lunar rover...

Lots of incredible cars in the link below - long.

Alfa Romeo 6C 2300 Aerodynamica Spyder
Art & Inspiration Swoopy cars - THE H.A.M.B.



Not an RS60/RSK, not even a Porsche!
8W - What? - Scuderia Serenissima

Quote:
The Maserati Tipo 63 was an evolution of the original 'Birdcage'. Serenissima often ran Vaccarella in these cars.
Here he is seen in the Pescara 4 Hours of 1961. Bonnier raced a V12 Tipo 63 while Vaccarella's example
was an earlier 4-cylinder version. Vaccarella's gearbox broke.
