Evolutionists will tell you that whales were once land mammals. Soon you’ll be able to say the same thing for the white whale of car manufacturing: Bugatti.

Within three months, the Bugatti Niniette, a sport yacht with enough horsepower to hit 48 miles per hour, will be hitting the open seas. A collaboration between the world’s oldest luxury carmaker and luxury yacht dealer Palmer Johnson, Niniette comes in three sizes, ranging from 42 to 88 feet.

The arcing silhouette is a salute to both the classic Bugatti sports car shape and the mono hull of the Palmer Johnson SuperSport series, which makes for a smoother ride both moving and anchored. The body is titanium and carbon fiber accented with bubinga, maple or naturally blue morta oak.

It also comes with a $3.52 million price tag, so prospective buyers better be packing a whale of a wallet.
