Australian designer Marc Newson has placed his golden touch on everything from clothing to aircrafts, and now he has unleashed what may be his most awesome creation ever - the Riva Aquariva.

Newson is renowned for his simple yet immediately recognisable work across a diverse range of spectrums. This time round, Newson collaborated with the very fancy-sounding Officina Italiana Design for a brilliant re-interpretation of the luxury speedboat. Although it made its initial appearance in 2010, the Riva Aquariva again pleased viewers at Arte-Fiera, an art fair in Bologna, Italy, earlier this year.

Adding to the extravagance and opulence of these boats, only 22 were made and they sell for around $1.5 million. Featuring a traditional colourway with eye-catching turquoise accents, this vessel's distinct vibe will teleport you straight to the Port of Miami on a summer's day. Throw on a pastel button-up, some slim-cut khaki pants and bring your finest champagne before you climb on board.
