Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing unveiled the "Black Series" 50' Marauder Cigarette boat at the recently ended 2012 Miami Boat Show, a sign of strengthening alliance between the two entities. Taking a cue from the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series, the Inspired by AMG "Black Series" 50' Marauder carries a striking black and white design scheme, which runs from the Mercedes color-matched paint to the newly designed interior, upholstered with luxurious Alcantara.
The car is integrated with more than a hundred anodized and corrosion-resistant billet aluminum pieces, all custom-made for the AMG Black Series boat. The billet is featured on the dash, sound system, seat supports, grab handles and in several trim accents.
The Inspired by AMG "Black Series" 50' Marauder boat is powered by two Mercury Racing 1350hp engines combining to achieve a 2,700 hp output, which guarantees smooth pump fuel efficiency.
The source of inspiration for the Cigarette boat, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series, is touted to be the most powerful C-Class of all time, with a maximum output of 510 hp and a maximum torque of 457 lb-ft.
The high-revving AMG 6.3-liter V8 allows the car to accelerate from zero to sixty miles per hour in just 4.2 seconds, and to reach a max speed of 186 mph.
