1979 Alfa Romeo Hydroplane monoplace de course courte à moteur
Moteur n° ARO1644*022845*

Construit en Italie en contreplaqué sur un bâti de bois, cet hydroplane trois points se singularise par un cockpit avancé avec siège baquet et volant, des témoin de pression d'huile et de température et un compte-tours. Il est propulsé par un moteur 4 cylindres d'Alfa Romeo GTA de 1300 cm3 entraînant une hélice de surface à deux pales. Le bateau pouvait atteindre des vitesses de près de 160 km/h sur surface lisse.
Vendu dans l'état le bateau vient avec une remorque routière à deux roues.
Typique de la classe hydroplane des années 1970, qui devait plus tard intégrer une classe spécifique S3 Euro Hydro réservée au moteur Alfa Nord 2000, cet esquif fut engagé trois fois dans la prestigieuse course d'endurance Pavia-Venezia de 384 km.
