LONDON: Italian supercar manufacturer Lamborghini is ditching the racetrack and hitting the high seas after teaming up with the Italian Sea Group to produce a 63-foot super yacht called Tecnomar.
Designed to reach a top-speed of 60 knots, powered by its twin V12, 2,000 horsepower engines, the yacht will be modeled on the Lamborghini Sian — the company’s first hybrid car.
Much like the Sian, the Tecnomar will be built in Lamborghini’s Centro Stile design studio from carbon fiber and the steering wheel and gauges in the yacht’s cockpit will be designed to look like those inside one of the company’s supercars. Even the starter button will be the same.
Stefano Domenicali, chairman and CEO of Automobili Lamborghini, said: “This yacht represents the significance of creating a valuable partnership, at its best: Our co-operation allows the essence of both organizations’ style and expertise to be transferred to different worlds, sharing in their diversity to interpret and add value to the final product in a new environment.
“If I had to imagine a Lamborghini on water, this would be my vision. I’m delighted to celebrate this successful collaboration,” he added.
The yacht’s design takes inspiration from the brand’s heritage and to mark the 1963 founding of Lamborghini, only 63 units are scheduled to be made. No starting price has been revealed.
