Ultimate showboating frivolity
A billionaire sailor no longer need feel anxious about having to wait for a limousine to pick him up when his superyacht docks at a smart Mediterranean resort. He can now take his own supercar with him.
And the new Marine Edition Mono is rather special.
Launched by yachting company Camper & Nicholsons in collaboration with Briggs Automotive Company, the car can reach 170mph and can surge from 0-60mph in just 2.7 seconds - yet it weighs only 580kg so can easily be hoisted onto land, according to The Daily Telegraph.
Owners can customize it by having its color match the yacht and the car’s seat molded to fit snugly. Protective coatings on the bodywork also protect against corrosion from salty air and water.
The price-tag is £500,000 (plus delivery and VAT where applicable) or about $750,000.
And for “superyacht owners who prefer to spend their time at sea its main purpose could simply be to serve as the ultimate showboating frivolity,” says The Daily Telegraph.
