It’s a common 1 Percent problem: You love supercars and yachting, but every time you’re on your yacht, you miss your supercar. Solution: Make your yacht look and perform like your supercar.
That’s exactly what millionaire entrepreneur Gino Gargiulo did after spending two years funding his latest high-octane DNA project.
If you’ve seen this manic green (Lamborghini calls it, “Verde Singh”) duo before, it was probably on the television show, “The Secret Lives of the Super Rich.” We found out about it when we were researching watches on one of our favorite sites for luxury items, JamesList.
So, what’s included for the $2,199,000 asking price?
2016 Lamborghini Aventador SV Roadster
Engine: Lamborghini 6.5-liter V12
Power: 740 hp; 509 lb.-ft of torque
Top Speed: 217 mph
0-60 mph: 2.6 seconds (estimated)
Mileage: 700 miles on the odometer
The Aventador SV included in the sale comes with everything carbon fiber you can think of, like carbon back seats, X-Frame and T-Engine. Aiding in the lightness and noise department, the wheels are custom made by PUR (center locks), and to make the car sound even throatier, Kreissieg exhaust with remote butterfly valve control has been fitted.
2017 Marine Technologies, Inc. MTI 52’ G6, “Super Veloce”
Engines: Mercury Racing
Power: 1,550 hp (race key fob); 1350 hp (pleasure key fob)
Top Speed: 180 mph
0-60 mph: Doesn’t matter.
MSRP: $1,750,000-plus (estimated)
Just like a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat, the go-fast boat utilizes two different key fobs based on the intentions of the skipper. Want to just troll around the ocean and not get too beat up? Use the Pleasure Key, which creates a paltry 1,350 horsepower on 91-octane fuel.
If you are feeling a bit more energetic and want to see if you can outrun the U.S. Coast Guard on a run to Cuba, pop in the Race Key. Delivering 200 horsepower more, for a total of 1,550 ponies (on 112 AKI race fuel, of course), the boat can hit a top speed of 180 mph.
Like the Aventador SV, the MTI “Super Veloce” uses carbon fiber extensively. The hull and deck, along with most parts of the cockpit, are made of the super-light material.
The seats and switch work were sourced and made to look like the interior of the Aventador SV, as were the OEM Lamborghini taillights and headlights.
The custom stereo system costs more than a new Toyota Camry ($25,000), and is super loud, as you can imagine.
To get the signature Lamborghini “Verde Singh” paint job, the vessel has been covered in the same paint color at the cost of $80,000.
A tilt trailer is thrown in as a $100,000 freebie to sweeten the offer.
According to JamesList, Mr. Gargiulo is selling the high-speed fraternal twins since an, “Unexpected family incident ‘regrettably’ forces sale of this incredible package.”
