Luxury yacht comes with free custom supercar

Luxury yacht comes with free custom supercar

 http://uk.cars.yahoo.com/09062010/36/luxury-yacht-comes-free-custom-supercar-0.html

"As boat accessories go, a bespoke supercar is probably the most extravagant. But that's exactly what millionaire buyers of the 17m Strand Craft SC122 will get.

Beating the Bugatti Veyron hands down for exclusivity, the supercar has 880bhp from its twin-turbo V12 engine and a claimed top speed of 234mph. Only six will be built, each capable of hitting 60mph from rest in 3.2 seconds.

Designed by Eduard Gray, the car is so synonymous with the yacht that the company doesn't seem to have named it. The supercar will spend most of its time in the custom garage below deck while its owner enjoys the supreme luxury of the yacht.

The SC122 is a vision of absolute splendour inside and out, kitted out with 52-inch televisions and a Bang & Olufsen surround sound system in every room. There are four double bedrooms, too.

Its power dwarfs that of the accompanying supercar. Twin Rolls-Royce engines each pump out over 4,000bhp, and there's an optional 5,000bhp booster if the standard amount just won't do.

That power enables the yacht to reach 55 knots - though at just over 60mph, it's actually quite sluggish compared to the car.

Is that all ? I'll take two then -  it's actually not that attractive, bit characterless really......

Were I to wake up on Saturday with the Euromillions in my pocket, that "superyacht" would not be on the list. Ugh! SO UGLY.

I'd take a classic Hillyard and pocket the extra, thanks.

It can't buy friends, either, but you do get a wider range of enemies for free.

I can't honestly say that the boat looks to be anything more than a one trick toy to be discarded sooner rather than later, and the same probably applies to the car.  Exclusive cars rarely get any use - they are made of exclusive parts for which spares are unavailable.

if you like that grey tupper ware thing it just goes to show you have the soul of a used car sales man not a seaman.

I'd rather refurbish an ex 'Brave Class'  and strap a little Robinson 2 seater helicopter + foldout titanium helipad on the foredeck for the odd 'run ashore'.  :}

The driver of the car must be thinking 'How did I manage to get the car off the vessel, but most importantly how do I get the car back on !!! '

Maybe a women driver ..........
