1/8 2007 Ferrari F430 hydroplane model.
This is a hand-built model of a Granturismo boat powered by a Ferrari F430 V8. Piloted by Eugenio Molinari, it set two new world water speed records on Lake Como in Italy (Endurance Group B class S1 and S2). The model hull is constructed of plantation acacia and the deck is joined by small poplar wood pieces and with mahogany like the original boat. Fittings, trimmings, steering wheels, switches, gauges, gear, rudder and propellers are made from brass chromed to look like stainless steel.
The model measures 28 x 12 x 9″ on the display stand.
