Miami restaurant mogul cooks up 186-mph speedboat to match his Aventador

Some people just need to go fast and look good, no matter the surface.

Miami restaurant magnate Gino Gargiulo is one of those people, and to prove it, he commissioned a commanding, aggressive speedboat to match his Lamborghini Aventador LP 720-4 last year.

The watercraft, called Raging Bull, cost a whopping $1.3 million to make, overshadowing the $750,000 Gargiulo plunked down for his special edition Lambo. Outside of the matching Giallo Maggio yellow color scheme, the vehicles share impressive performance dexterity on their respective surfaces.

While the 720–horsepower Aventador boasts a top speed of 217 mph and 0 to 60 time of just 2.9 seconds, the speedboat isn’t far behind.

With two twin-turbo Mercury Racing 1350 engines at the rear, the 48-foot Raging Bull has a staggering output of 2,700 hp and a downright terrifying top speed of 186 mph.

The banana-colored duo first appeared in 2014, but at the 2015 Supercar Week in Palm Beach, Florida, the stylish speedsters were again displayed side by side.

YouTube channel Mike Supercars TopSpeed has posted a video inspecting the matching pair from all angles, and you can see the design ethos of the LP 720-4 showcased on the speedboat. The arrow-like front end and headlights are perhaps the most obvious crossovers, but the Raging Bull also wears Aventador-inspired seats, taillights, dash, and steering wheel.

Believe it or not, this isn’t the first time Gargiulo has built a water-bound companion to a high-end supercar. Back in 2007, the restaurant owner commissioned a boat inspired by his Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren.

They say money can’t buy happiness, which is probably true. But it can buy a matching speedboat and supercar combo, so there’s that.
