Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 Is a 4,000-Horsepower Marine Hypercar

For one-percenters and anyone who’s life has been thoroughly documented on American Greed, finding creative new ways to spend those millions can be challenging. Some of us can relate to having an extra three million dollars to burn, unable to decide between a new hypercar or a speedboat. Next year, Lamborghini wants to make the answer a little easier: Both.

By any measure, the limited-edition Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 is an absurd, hypercar-inspired pleasurecraft. At its core are twin MAN V12 24.2-liter diesel engines weighing a total of five tons. At full throttle, the combined 4,000-horsepower is capable of pushing the 63-foot boat to an eye-popping 60 knots. That makes it the fastest vessel in Tecnomar’s very capable, very high-end catalog of luxury boats.

Automobili Lamborghini’s Chairman and CEO, Stefano Domenicali said of the design, “If I had to imagine a Lamborghini on water, this would be my vision.” With clear inspiration from the new Sián FKP 37 supercar, the aesthetic is unmistakably Lamborghini. The angular hull, liberal use of panoramic side windows, and steeply raked cockpit all give the illusion that the vessel is screaming across the water, even at a standstill. The aggressive bow lights are similar to the company’s radical Terzo Millennio electric concept car. At the rear, the sharp taillights recall those of recent Lamborghini models. Everything about the look is dramatic, extreme, and luxurious — all hallmarks of Lamborghini’s signature look for nearly 60 years.

That visual drama carries through to the cockpit as well. The design takes equal inspiration from the driver display clusters of modern hypercars and traditional nautical gauges. The race-inspired captain’s chair, bold red start/stop buttons (one for each engine), and touchscreen panels feel more reminiscent of a supersonic fighter jet than a traditional watercraft. Fit and finish are high-end throughout with heavy use of carbon-fiber and a boatload (pun intended) of available customization options for fabrics, trims, and decking materials.

Pricing for the Tecnomar for Lamborghini 63 is rumored to start around $3 million, although the expected options list would quickly push that price tag much higher. First deliveries are slated for early 2021, and production will be capped at just 63 units.

Well-heeled mariners who can’t bother to wait for their own over-the-top pleasurecraft can shop the similarly priced Hyper-Sub speedboat-submarine right now.

While not fully autonomous, Level 2 self driving is becoming more common with many manufacturers having their own systems. GM is one of those manufacturers, and its “Super Cruise” system claims to be the most extensive one available in the United States at the moment.

Like other Level 2 systems, Super Cruise allows drivers to take their hands off the wheel on designated stretches of road and let the vehicle do its thing. As with other systems, Super Cruise will pop up a notification when you can activate it. When it's running, the top of your wheel will go green. If you see it flash red, then it's time to take control of the vehicle.

Having just returned from WWII, some of General Motors' design team were awestruck by the plethora of two-seat sports cars running rampant overseas and decided to try their hands at an American version. Though attractive, Chevrolet's Corvette was anything but an instant success. The new Corvette remained essentially unchanged in its first two years, but since Ford had also been concurrently working on their own two-seat roadster called the Thunderbird, things began to change quickly starting in 1955.

Chevy's new sports car had good looks but paled compared to the stunning mid-1950s T-Birds. However, General Motors paid attention to what customers wanted and polished its newfound diamond in the rough to become not only one of the best-selling two-seaters in history but also the longest-running domestic badge in the United States.

Why is Audi making a big deal about launching RS 6 Avant GT in California?

Audi released the limited-edition Audi RS 6 Avant GT in California because the car has a cult status in the U.S., Audi's second-largest market worldwide. After this first limited-edition launch, Audi plans ten more by 2026 as part of a marketing strategy to fortify the Audi brand in the North American region, which the automaker considers one of three pillars worldwide.
