So, if you’re a fan of the 638-horsepower rating of the Corvette ZR1, than chances are the 2,700 horsepower MTI “ZR48” powerboat will do more than just tickle your fancy.
This 48-foot water rocket features official Corvette parts from stern to bow and is especially evident in the cabin. open the gullwing doors and you will find an authentic Corvette dashboard, steering wheel and shifter. But there’s also a second row, enough monitors to fill a sports bar, blue LED lighting, a nasty sound system and even Apple TV with a Wi-Fi network complete with a custom iPad dock integrated into the glove box.
What gives the ZR48 its immense power are a pair of 1,350 horsepower Mercury Racing twin-turbo engines with 8 drives, coupled with ZR1-inspired engine covers. Oh, and it comes with an equally bad-ass trailer. But to own it, one must spend no less than $1.7 million.
Whoever buys this, be sure to enter it in next year’s St. Clair River Classic here in Michigan, you will make a lonely writer happy for a couple of days.
