Feast your eyes on the brand new DIEMAX V12

 
Diesel, 6 liter, 600 hp, 350 kg (772 lbs), 12 cylinders. There you have it! Impressive numbers, isn’t it. Especially the weight is cool. They started off with 2 BMW V6 engines and then designed this black and orange beast. The block is made of aluminum hence the gain in weight which will be very welcomed by powerboaters. You’ll find the DIEMAX also on Facebook and you can see and hear this inboard in action. You’re not on Facebook? Check out their website for much more information. Powerboating.be is invited to run a test. I know, it’s a dirty job.
