What are the stats on the powerplants for that beast. I'm just blow away. That's like someone having an m3 that goes 400mph.

Also notice that it is not a big block Chevy but a dedicated all aluminum DOHC 4 valve marine engine with a closed cooling system that will idle at 800 rpm!

The water needs to be VERY VERY calm for this to work. It looked like it was an inch away from being lifted into the air. Very very impressive...never seen anything like it

Damn, that was fast! I have never tried doing something like that.

I would definitely love to experience it.

I'm curious how much that boat retails for. I found a couple of references listing ~350k but if those numbers on the engine are right then this must be incorrect.

$350K may very well be correct for the boat with the base engines (Mercruiser MAG 496 HO/425HP) which retail for around $16,500-$17,000USD.

The price of the M31 with the Mercury Racing 1350's would most likely be somewhere around $700,000-$750,000USD or more depending on options. These boats are all one offs and are extremely customizable, I am sure some of them reach or top $1,000,000USD.
