Legendary brand Riva has joined forces with Ferrari for a partnership regarding the Formula 1 World Championship. The two Italian legendary brands are now partners in a sponsorship agreement. Riva, part of the Ferretti Group is one of the main sponsors of Scuderia Ferrari. The sponsorship was made official in Maranello on February 19th. The Riva logo and the blue aquamarine background will be present on the helmets of Ferrari Formula 1 drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen.
“We are really proud to write a new chapter in the history of Riva and Ferrari, renewing a partnership that in the past has produced some masterpieces of the nautical world”, said Alberto Galassi, CEO of the Ferretti Group.
In the past, Riva and Ferrari have worked together to create some special boats. For example, the Riva Ferrari 32 Speedboat from 1990. Only 30 pieces built, it is today a rare example of the collaboration between the two Italian myths. It was a Formula 1 styled hull, painted in Ferrari Rosso Corsa hue and with a black carbon fiber spoiler on top. It had plenty of power: two 390 hp V8 Vulcano 400 engines for a top speed of over 50 knots.
