FPT INDUSTRIAL POWERS FABIO BUZZI IN THE DIESEL POWERBOAT GUINNESS WORLD SPEED RECORD: MORE THAN 277 KM/H
FPT Industrial and FB Design have been collaborating for 35 years, and this partnership most recently created a powerboat characterized by new innovative technologies, such as those for the turbocharging system where multiple electronic variable geometry turbo solutions have been introduced. Furthermore, the cooling system now features a single-direct circuit, with a water intake step-change solution inside the boat’s rudder.
The collaboration also resulted in new marine concepts, such as the aluminum extruded exhaust manifold on the last generation electronic Common Rail base engine, characterized by steel pistons.
All of these innovations can be directly applied to world of sports and racing, where FPT Industrial found an important partner over three decades ago. FB Design and FPT Industrial have won 32 titles together, including 15 world championships in different classes and 17 International trophies: seven in Europe, four in South America and six in Italy. Buzzi’s hulls, powered by FPT Industrial, have won speed races throughout the 1980’s and triumphed in the 2012 New York-Bermuda race with the “Col Moschin” boat, equipped with two C90 650 engines. These same engines even won a broaching during the Montecarlo-Venezia race in 2011 with the “Kerakoll FPT”, while the “Red FPT” was fitted with four N67 600 engines when it won the Marathon World Cup in 2010, the most prestigious endurance race in the world. All these achievements, together with the latest Guinness World Record, testify the efforts of FPT Industrial in this field as well as the high performance and reliability of its engines, that are now closer to the final customer thanks to the new Cursor 16 marine, born from a world record-breaking engine.
