    I wonder if they all came with out an engine hatch or just #278 to show case the Lambo 12's. Must be pretty loud inside the cockpit ,but I'll bet the sound of 24 sparks plugs chattering away offsets it
    machinist ,bore it deeper,ream it bigger, and lap it to a fine finish

    Ferrari boxer engine in a Nautico Dellapasqua DC7

    The Cantiere Nautico Dellapasqua DC shipyard is another old boat manufacturer in Italy and in 1989 they stuck a Ferrari Testarossa 'flat' V12 with

    390 hp in their racing derived daycruiser. They sure got some publicity and I haven't heard that they made any more with a Ferrari in the DC7

    daycruiser, it was a Kevlar49 lay-up hull in this specific boat. Dellapasqua make very high quality boats, but mainly yachts in the 30'-60' range.

    Like the sound of the 'boxer' and a curiosity is the Volvo DPX drive. Legendary Ferrari engineer Mario Vincenzi made it all work.
