Luxury Austrian boatbuilder Frauscher has come out with one of the most beautiful speedboats we've ever laid eyes on, a stunning combination of classic good looks and modern design. The Cantiere Nautico Feltrinelli (above) is being produced in honor of Italian boatracing legend Dino Feltrinelli, who won several titles in the 1930s and '40s. Frauscher, founded in 1927, commissioned designer Annette Hintwirth to create the special edition of their sporty and elegant 686 Lido model.
Hintwirth dressed the craft in a black hull with teak decking and white waterproof leather upholstery. Only nine examples will be built and each one will be delivered to the new owners at Lake Garda, Italy along with a lesson in piloting the boat. Features of the chic craft, which is powered by a Volvo Penta V8 engine, include a rotating, retractable height-adjustable table, driver's seats that can turn 360° degrees, and an automatic wind protection shield that deploys at the proper speed.
