If you're looking for an unmitigated thrill ride, it doesn't get much more unadulterated than a high-powered personal watercraft. In other words, a jet ski. And this is the new king of the water.
Packing an enormous 300 horsepower – that's more than most cars – the 2011 Kawasaki Jet Ski Ultra 300X can hit a top speed of 67 miles per hour on the open water. With its supercharged 1.5-liter inline-four engine, three-passenger capacity and electronic instrumentation, the Ultra 300X is the wave-running equivalent of a supercar, and will set you back nearly $15,000.
