The fastest accelerating boats on the planet. Top Fuel Drag Boats accelerate from 0 – 270 miles per hour (430 kilometres per hour) in just 3.5 seconds. They use a supercharged V8 engine running on nitro-methane fuel and produce 10,000 horsepower. The amazing photo of the red boat, Toxic Rocket, in the thumbnail was taken by Mark Sharley Photography.
