Jet-skis are cool toys to begin with, but make one out of carbon fiber and you have our undivided attention. The Silveira Green Samba XRS hull weighs in at a mere 35 pounds and is driven with twin direct drive electric propulsion pods.
The Silveira Green Samba XRS is brought to us by The Silveira Group, who specializes in custom personal watercrafts. Based out of Ohio, Silveira has designed the greenest of green jet ski’s, emitting zero-emissions. (Wait, is that an oxymoron?)
The all-electric jet-ski resembles a shark while still taking true sit-down, jet-ski form. A perfect ocean ride as it brings the rider lower to the water, leading to a more intuition driven ride.
The custom, carbon fiber Green Samba XRS can be purchased for $17,000 plus. Geesh! But hey, its cheaper than a carbon fiber, pimped out Ferrari! Here’s a couple pictures of the production, you can see more at Selveira’s website.
Here’s a little video to see it in action:
