The Riva Super Ariston needs little introduction as one of the most popular and best known of all the models produced by Cantieri Riva.  The first Ariston was completed in 1950 with the ‘Super’ model introduced in 1960.  The Super Ariston soon found favour with the rich and famous on the Cote d’Azure with its stylish good looks and superb performance with the larger engined examples reaching speeds of 80 km/h.

This particular Super Ariston, number 561 is presented in ‘as new’ condition and has in recent years been cosmetically up-graded to concourse throughout.  In the mid 1970’s Riva installed and certified a new engine a 330hp Chrysler 440cid with electronic ignition.  The engine has recently been completely overhauled and serviced and comes with many new spare parts.  The wiring has all been renewed.

Three years ago the deck was professionally replaced and re-varnished , the bottom was also replaced four years ago.  New upholstery was fitted five years ago.  Original full Riva dust cover.
Four wheeled road trailer, total loaded weight 2700kg.
