Don Johnsons old 43 scarab that had the Lambo motors was here in Ventura for years. It sold a couple of years ago and is now back east somewhere (LOTO maybe?)

The European boats look a good bit larger than our supercats. Which are faster and why?

Also, you never see one of ours simply blow over like Maritimo does in that vid. What's up with that?

Today these engines are in California, awaiting their new home in a platinum...

they are roughly the same size as our supercats (all new boats are between 40'-44' and older boats are grandfathered in at 39'4"-48')....the 44 mti runs over there and is basically the same as the supercat mti with a bustle and rudder... due to restrictors on the engines, they run the boats as loose as possible, really loose.... especially MP's latest creations (the latest rash of photos of the victory boats flying upside down and backwards...) and they are running much faster race speeds than our supercats...

The UIM record with restrictors on is 160 and change.
Restrictors removed probably in the range you qoute.

Heard a Lambo motor running on the dyno one day at Sterling Performance a couple years ago. Sound is awsome and unmistakeable!

I (Allez Vite) couldn't keep up with that boat in a poker run in the early 90's on Lake Michigan. And he had 6 people on board!

There's a pair of them on the floor At Innovation Marine right now.
