The new pirate-busting, fastest boat in the world, which costs £1.2 Million was taken out yesturday...By a piece of driftwood!!!
The superboat specifically made to battle the sea pirates crashed on a demo run after hitting a piece of wood floating along.
The superboat, called the XSR Interceptor can reach a top speed of 100MPH! But was brought to a stand still in the river Thames. It's propeller got jammed from the impact and the superboat was knocked off course, it then went on to hit the dock. No one was hurt in the accident.
This demo was being shown to potential buyers of the superboat, which is coated in Kevlar. Potential buyers included the Ministry Of Defense (MOD). The makers must of been very embarrassed! So the question on everyones lips...Why, or how could a piece of driftwood disable a superboat built for protection against pirates? This superboat was specifically made to be tough. It has state of the art equipment and technology. It even has two remote controlled machine guns! I wonder what excuse the makers came up with!...
