Cigarette Racing Boat Inspired by AMG makes its debut ahead

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Mercedes-Benz AMG cars and Cigarette Racing boats have teamed up to create a custom Cigarette Racing boat that's inspired by the new Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG.

Very little is known about the project but Cigarette Racing is known to have more than 100 innovations and it will be one of the most advanced boats the company has ever built.

The hull will utilize a lightweight composite (presumably fiberglass) design optimized to provide a balance of a smooth ride and high-speed stability.

Also featured on the AMG Cigarette Boat are numerous technology advancements, from the paints to the electronics and power plant. While Cigarette Racing hasn't given any specifications on the engine or horsepower output of the boat, it's believed to be "AMG inspired."

It wouldn't even be farfetched to conclude that it would be glad to see a modified form of the SLS AMG's 6.2-liter V-8 used in the boat. Cigarette Racing said that the boat will use twin-staggered powerplants, so we'd expect two of the engines mounted in back, likely pumping out more than 1000 hp total.

The company claims that the 42-ft long boat will be capable of over 120 mph. The unveiling of the AMG Cigarette Racing boat will be this February 11 at the Miami International Boat Show in Miami, Florida. The boat will be on display until the show closes on February 15.
