  1. from the miami boat show......looks like amazing quality workmanship
     
  2. single or twin engine?

    sweet tho
     
  3. shitty interior

    and lol the roof has already come off

  5. Looks like a major pain in the ass to get out of both the driver + front passengers seat, but probably still cool. Looks like its twin 7L, pretty sweet.
     
  6. we have a seldom used boat forum for a reason, and this is it
     
  7. WANT
    except I want one in black
     
  8. That's pretty wicked! I want a long shot of what the exterior looks like though. That hood shot looks pretty cool, but I want a clearer view.
     
  9. cool but i wouldnt own it. (i dont know why)

  11. Sheer badassery
     
  12. Note the dual tachs.
     
  13. 2200 hp from a single marine engine is rare, usually occurring only in very large engines for very large boats (typically 70 feet or larger).

    the plastic covers are just for show, look further down at the real valve covers, they are twin supercharged mercury marine engines

    they come various sizes, including 1050, 1075, and 1200hp each, so im not sure exactly which he has, but he could be well over 2khp

    those are the same people who assembled the original ZR-1 LT-5

    Also, in before GT-R version:

    Brick on water will short circuit CPU

    Edit, I assume its the same people. I know they have the same Mercury Marine name, but the one in the link has different address.

    haha shit, didnt look close enough, my god what a monster engine, 2 twin-screw chargers? madness.
     
  17. i dont know what gas engine would produce 2200 hp marine application, if would have to be a diesel or gas turbine if you wanted that power from a single engine. a wartsila 8L20 makes that, and weighs 11 tonne.
     
  18. And from Mustangs with AC and full interiors.
     
  19. $5000 including the car
     
  20. i like boats with car tail lights
     
  21. you cant compare horsepower figures of a diesel tanker engine to performance powerboat engines.
