Yes, this 1952 Ferrari V12 ‘Arno XI’ is real and not a fan creation. It was inspired by Achille Castoldi in the early 1950s and built by the Cantiere Timossi boatyard, located in Azzano on Lake Como, Italy. This watercraft is powered by a 4.5L V12 engine producing 385 hp, the same one Ferrari used for their 1951 Grand Prix victory in the 375 F1, installed on a Timossi three-point racing hydroplane hull.

For those who have never heard of the Suzuki SC100 (Cervo), it’s essentially a microcar that was first introduced in 1976 as the successor to the Suzuki Fronte Coupé.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t have a twin-turbocharged 2.9L V8 engine producing 471 hp, but rather a 970 cc four-cylinder F10A engine producing a mere 46 hp, enabling it to top out at 89 mph.

On a related note, did you know that there are differences between Europen and North American semi-trucks? That’s right, nearly all European models are cab over engine, while the majority of North American trucks are “conventional”. The former translates into shorter trucks with longer trailers within the legal maximum total length. Read more for additional pictures.
