Submitted by on May 16, 2012

1953 Timossi-Ferrari 'Arno XI' Racing Hydroplane

“Unique, instantly recognisable, achingly beautiful and immensely historic.”

This one of a kind 1953 Timossi-Ferrari ‘Arno XI’ Racing Hydroplane went for a healthy €868.000/US$1,124,060 in RM Auctions’ Monaco sale, held over the weekend in Monaco.

Timossi di Azzano’s stunning racing hydroplane hull was powered by a twin-supercharged 4493.73 cc Ferrari Tipo 375 F1 V-12 engine that put out over 600 brake horsepower – enough to push it to a world speed record in its class of 241.708 kilometers an hour in 1953.

Enjoy the video below, which sees the waves left in a considerably less bruised state as it blasts around at a more gentlemanly, but no less enjoyable pace.
