It is inspired by Filipino racing boats or "Bancarera" and can travel at over 80km/h.  

The jet ski features a trimaran wing, which gives the Mantra stability – and its classy Batmobile look. It also provides hydrodynamic lift for greater performance, and seriously fun "drift-style" cornering.

The company says the vehicle is not meant to compete with normal jet skis, but is meant for those who appreciate something unique.

The look and feel of the jet ski is drawn from vintage cars and speed boats, and includes a hand-made hull complete with wood finish. It has a GPS Speedometer, push button start, automatic bilge pump, and custom stainless prop.

Should you feel the need to go fishing, rather than fighting crime, there is also a package which will include two rod holders.
