If Lamborghini Made Boats... Well You Get The Idea
If you’re super-rich, buying a Lamborghini Aventador might just be the perfect reward for a lifetime of accomplishments. But if you’re super-super-rich, like Miami restaurant tycoon Gino Gargiulo, suddenly the Aventador doesn’t go far enough. Which is why Gargiulo commissioned this $1.1 million Lamborghini-inspired speedboat to accompany his beloved $750,000 Aventador LP720-4 Roadster. Suspend your reserves for a moment – this thing is unbelievable.

Called the Raging Bull, it was designed by Xtremepowerboats to integrate the flair and performance that Gargiulo experienced with the Aventador, but in a purely Miami speedboat kind of way. The boat sports massive side-mounted air scoops and follows the unmistakable haunches of the car that inspired its shape.
Its $400,000 powertrain, a pair of Mercury Racing 1350 engines, offers supercar-like performance too, capable of rocketing the Raging Bull up to a top speed of 186mph, allegedly.
Oddly enough, this isn’t the first time he’s done this. Back in 2007, Gargiulo ordered a Mercedes-inspired speedboat. Is it a bit over-the-top? Yes, absolutely, but Gargiulo isn’t exactly your everyday character.
The current owner of a group of automotive repair shops and a chain of fast-food restaurants; Gargiulo was homeless and penniless only 25 years prior. Thanks to a little bit of luck and lots of hard work, he paved his way to financial success and can now afford to spend, spend, spend.
You can check out the Raging Bull in action tonight at 10pm EST on CNBC, during the season premier of Secret Lives of the Super Rich.
