Mercedes-Benz’s AMG Cigarette Racing BoatPosted By Matt on May 25, 2011 In Categories: Boats / Videos
About a year ago, Mercedes-Benz and Cigarette Racing released this AMG inspired love child.
Inspired by the lightweight SLS-AMG, Cigarette’s main goal was to create a sleek elegant boat that will “push the boundaries of technology.” This AMG Cigarette boat contains over 100 new innovations like an improved bottom and weight shedding techniques.
The SLS-AMG may seem like a powerful beast with 563 hp 6.2L AMG V8. But this is a minuscule amount compared to the AMG Cigarette’s whopping 2,700 hp. This enormous power comes from two twin-turbocharged 552-cubic-inch, 1,350-horsepower Mercury Racing engines. These engines are expected to push this 46-foot boat to an astonishing 130 mph.
This water-conquering speedster is covered by hand with AMG Alubem silver paint (the same color offered on the gullwing SLS AMG). This paint covers surfaces like a metallic skin to highlight the body’s stunning lines. The exterior is also accented with Designo Mystic White metallic paint
But now to the inside, this boat features marine-grade upholstery that is quite similar to the two-tone AMG Designo porcelain and white napa leather found in the SLS AMG.
Overall, this collaborative effort has created one stunningly powerful boat that is any boat enthusiasts dream. Unfortunately with a price tag around $1,000,000, only a lucky few will have the opportunity ever sit at the helm.
