Causing a splash! The supercharged jet ski that’s more powerful than a PORSCE

July 10, 2013 | by | 0 Comments

This is the hottest new plaything on the water – a supercharged jet ski as powerful as a Porsche.

The Black Edition 360 Sea-Doo – with a top speed of 80mph – has been boosted by an additional 100bhp.

That gives the thrilling machine a fearsome 360bhp – the same as a Porsche 911 sports car.

But adrenaline junkies will have to splash out £20,000 to land one and just 100 are being made by manufacturers 158performance.

Eight-time world jet ski champion James Bushell, a partner at 158performance, was the first rider to test the new machine.

He said: “It goes like stink and handles just like my race ski.

“It practically pulls your arms off – this isn’t one for the weak-wristed.”

Although the Black Edition 360 is not the fastest-ever jet ski in a straight line, the makers claim its power while turning means it will not be beaten on any race course.

The limited production batch of 100 are expected to be sold to playboy customers including Arab billionaires.

Designers say they have even received a request to repaint one of the jet skis to match the new owner’s yacht.

A spokesman for 158performance, based at Tallington Lakes, Lincs., said: “This is our most exciting product ever.

“If you want to thrash everyone else on the lake or pose at the beach, this is the one for you.”
