FPT Industrial powers Fabio Buzzi to the diesel powerboat GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title

​London, March 8, 2018 

FPT Industrial, the powertrain brand of CNH Industrial (NYSE: CNHI /MI: CNHI), is now part of speed record history. Fabio Buzzi, multiple powerboat racing world-champion and CEO of FB Design, has set the fastest speed on water using a diesel engine developed by FPT Industrial and a hull engineered by FB Design. The record, certified by GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS, was broken on Wednesday March 7th on Lake Como, Italy seeing the threepoint hull reaching a speed of 277.5 Km/h, some 25.5km/h more than the previous record. 

Working together on the new engine, FPT Industrial and FB Design converted FPT Industrial’s Cursor 16 liter engine, generally used in agriculture applications, into a marine engine capable of generating more than 1,700 hp. 

​FPT Industrial's mission has always been to promote innovation in the field of racing in the pursuit of solutions and results that can be subsequently applied to mass production engines.​
