Corvette-Inspired Superboat must be seen to be believed

Offbeat / Comments

A 2,700hp Corvette-inspired boat is currently for sale, costing a cool $1.7 million. Any takers?

Forget the fact you need $1.7 million to make the Corvette ZR1-themed 2012 ZR48 MTI boat your own, and simply marvel at its glorious insanity. A pair of 1,350hp turbocharged Mercury Marine V8 engines are strapped into the carbon-fiber hull of this monster, and accented with ZR1 type supercharger covers that gives it a proper Corvette look. The exterior also boasts ZR1-inspired hull sides, taillights, headlights, marker lights, custom ZR48 emblems and engine vents and custom gullwing type cockpit hatches.


A full Corvette interior has also been installed with a custom dash with fully functional gauges, a custom ZR1 steering wheel and a custom shifter that throttles both engines. Clad in ultra leather and suede, there are six air-conditioned seats, and the entire cockpit area is accented by custom Lumiflex and LED lighting. In addition, the builders added a state-of-the-art sound system with multiple speakers. Plus hooked it up with Apple TV with a Wi-Fi network, and a custom iPad dock integrated into the glove box. It's also won many awards and according to the sellers, it's every Corvette enthusiast's "Dream Boat."

Included in the sale is the trailer that's equipped with a generator, water tank, power washer, engine flush system, and five televisions. The trailer has also been custom designed to make an oversized boat legal to transport. The ZR48 MTI is truly an amazing thing with a top speed of 180mph.
