When you have your own autoclaves, you can come up with all sorts of carbon fiber stuff. And that’s exactly what Mansory did.
Now, if I was the King Midas of carbon fiber, I would have created outrageous things from the composite material just for the fun of it. Carbon fiber water bottles, carbon fiber Imperial Stormtrooper suits, carbon fiber toothpicks, you name it. Mansory chose to bedizen a Jet Ski with carbon fiber, instead.
Which is awesome; just imagine the character of such a maritime jet racer complemented by the lightness of the “exotic” material. The machine is called the Black Marlin (yes, just like the fish) and it’s based on Sea-Doo RXT-X 260 RS – which is like the Ferrari of jet skis, only supercharged, boasting around 260 Hp.
The German tuner says its vast experience in manipulating carbon-fiber has managed to shave 10 kilograms off the Jet Ski’s weight, making it significantly dynamic in the process. That and the fact it raised the watercraft’s power to 550 horses has something to do with its new acquired dynamism.
Still, the Sea-Doo also received an aggressive design in order back up its muscle. This is no sleeper Jet Ski.
