A crazed Italian man, by the name Marco Amoretti, attempted to reach Venice in his Maserati sports car-by way of the River Tiber.
To give Amoretti some credit, he did convert his car into an amphibous vehicle before the trip. And he has done this before: Amoretti once crossed the Atlantic in a pair of similar modified cars. The local police, however, were not amused and the car was seized.
Amoretti has already announced his next big trick, however: To drive a Fiat 500 from Martinique to New York, stopping in Miami.
