Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing have joined forces for the sixth consecutive year to create a powerful boat, inspired by the automaker’s race car.
Referred to as the Cigarette Racing Team 41′ SD GT3, it’s described as “the most powerful ‘open performance’ boat ever” and it is motivated by a pair of Mercury Racing engines, with NXT6 Drives, producing 1,100hp and allowing an estimated prop limited top speed of more than 100mph (162km/h).
The 20,000+lbs (9,000+kg) weighing machine’s design reflects the dynamic characteristics of the Mercedes-AMG GT3. It benefits from handcrafted exterior and interior, matte components, complete teak wood floor, full extreme marine grade leather interior, three high-def 17-inch displays, Bluetooth, Garmin and Cigarette navi, audio and computerized controls.
The one-of-a-kind racing powerboat is offered for sale, with price available upon request. Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing Team have the 41′ SD GT3 on display at the Miami International Boat Show, which is open to the public at the Marine Stadium Park & Basin, between February 11 and 15.
This isn’t the first time that the two companies collaborate, as their partnership began in 2007, mainly for organizing joint customer and marketing activities. The 38′ to 50′ long powerboats from the American manufacturer are some of the fastest and most exclusive machines.
