A supercar but it’s a boat – you can now drive a Ferrari or a Chevy Corvette on water

This is the perfect toy for wealthy (and wild) people who live near the ocean: a supercar boat.

A company called Waterlink is renting these jetski/boat supercars, which are currently based off of Corvette and Ferrari models.

It will also include Bentley, Aston Martin and Bugatti in the near future.

The engine is still located at the rear but the V8 that powers the Corvette C8, on which this speedboat is based, has been replaced with 1.8-litre unit.

Mind you, the top speed is 100kmh (62mph/54 knots) and that’s more than enough on water.

Supercar Blondie’s Sergi Galiano got a chance to drive it in Dubai and said it was “unlike anything I’ve ever seen before”. Check out the video above to see Sergi put it through its paces.

The cabin still looks like a car: you’ve got a gear lever, a steering wheel, a gas pedal but no brakes, all you have to do is lift the throttle and the laws of physics will do the rest.

The ‘speedboatVette‘ costs about $40,000-$50,000, but you can also rent one for about $700 an hour.
