Brabus Marine — the amalgamation of the luxury performance car maker Brabus and the award-winning Finnish boat builder Axopar Boats — has now created a new blacked-out limited edition of its Shadow 900 speedboat, a seafarer which had previously won the Red Dot Design Award.
Dubbed the “Black-Ops” edition, the overall aesthetic of the boat has been tailored for espionage, worthy of James Bond himself, with a sleek black body paired with danger-inspiring red upholstery and lightweight carbon-fiber trims. Using two 450R Verado XL 4.6-litre V8 engines, the speeder can push reach maximum speeds of more than 60 knots thanks to its 900 horsepower output. Of course, aside from performance, the Shadow 900 is also packed with luxury amenities, including a wet bar on the top deck, gullwing doors that lead into the front lounge, a queen-sized sleeping room, and an optional aft cabin.
For those interested, Brabus Marine’s limited edition Shadow 900 “Black-Ops” will go for $450,000 USD, and only 37 will be made. Head over to the company’s website to learn more.
Elsewhere in the automotive world, Paul Walker’s BMW M3 E30 has sold for $150,000 USD.
