Corvette ZR48 boat interiorThere is no replacement for displacement, whether you're on the road, in the clouds or bursting across wide open water at 180 mph. That's exactly what you could do if you had a cool $1.7 million laying around and felt like making the 2012 ZR48 MTI your very own. The boat features a pair of 1,350-horsepower turbocharged Mercury Marine V8 engines strapped into a carbon fiber hull. That's all run-of-the-mill tech for the superboat crowd, but what sets this craft apart from the fleet is its complete Chevrolet Corvette interior.

Why transplant the worst part of one of the best performance buys in the automotive market into your million-dollar boat? Probably because you can. That, and odds are you won't be relaxed enough to look anywhere but down the bow when this machine is at wide open throttle. The ZR48 MTI features seating for six and a spiffy custom trailer designed to haul the craft on its side (the machine is too wide to be transported right-side up). Check it out in our gallery, then head over to Tennessee's Pier 57 for more information.

      Hope Al Gore doesn't see this. The carbon footprint (wake) would sent him over the edge. He would never come out of his 18 room house.

      Total wast of money. To spend that much on a boat which you can't entertain, or sleep on or travel the world is just silly. You want to go fast and have the means, buy a sports car for a fraction of the price. Once this boat is purchased, it will instantly depreciate by 50%. No one who earns money would buy such a frivalous toy. The market for this is the sons and daughters of hard workers who made the family fortune.

      Wow, great looking toy. I am surprised that Obama has not ordered two of those via US Taxpayers money for him to float his BS.

      Hey, if someone has the $$ for it, I'm happy for them! I'm just not understanding the negative comments on how someone that is putting money into the economy...especially that much cash....is part of the reason for "this country going down in flames"? Don't hate...be thankful they're spending it here! ;)

      It may be overkill, It may be complete lunacy to build and buy. But think of the Ladies you would attract with this thing.... If I had the money to spare for Fuel & Insurance... I would certainly have one in my stable of toys. But that's just me. There are already replies to this that obviously think its owner is NUTS to have it. I say their jealous. Remember: The guy who dies with the most Toys wins..
