X S R

I think the X S R were an all carbon built boat so likely to smash themselves to bits in no time being to stiff .
And I don't think They ever archived there predicted top end speeds .
Very nice looking boat though.

If I have got it wrong or mixed up with another boat let me know but I sure it's the boat James May got bashed to bits in on top gear .

Yes they were very costly , but there was no expense spared with what was put on them, canopy glass was self tinting and something else can't remember now all sing and dancing stuff that was astronomical in price, All top of the shop kit

I wonder how many they sold. They army looking one is padlocked to the marina. Gorgeous boats, wrong choice in engines I think.

Richard Hammond raced a ferrari daytona against it while it was still a prototype. James got properly bashed up but seemed stable enough.
