Cigarette Racing’s Latest Boat Draws Inspiration From The Mercedes-AMG Project One

Mercedes and Cigarette Racing have teamed up to create an all-new boat that draws inspiration from the Project One.

Set to debut at the Miami Boat Show on February 15th, the Cigarette Racing 515 Project One is a high-performance speed boat that features a two-tone livery and plenty of AMG badging.

Details haven’t been released but the Project One concept debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September and previews an all-new supercar which features Formula 1 technology. The model has a 1.6-liter V6 hybrid engine with an electric turbocharger. The car also has two front electric motors that produce 163 PS (120 kW) and another electric motor that is “installed directly on the combustion engine with a link to the crankcase.”

This complex setup gives the all-wheel drive supercar a combined output in excess of 1,000 PS (740 kW). This enables the model to rocket from 0-200 km/h (0-124 mph) in less than six seconds before hitting a top speed beyond 350 km/h (217 mph). The Project One can also travel approximately 25 km (15 miles) on electricity alone.

While we shouldn’t expect the boat to be that advanced, the 515 Project One will become the latest in a long line of AMG-inspired models created by Cigarette Racing. In 2014, the company introduced the Vision GT Concept which drew inspiration from the AMG Vision Gran Turismo concept car. Two years later, they unveiled the 41′ SD GT3 which was influenced by the AMG GT3 race car. Last year, the AMG GT R helped spawn the inspiration for the carbon fiber intensive Marauder AMG.

    I know some readers hate when CS publishes stories that are NOT about cars (ie. the Tom Cruise helicopter story). I’m not one of those people. Anyway, if you’re going to publish a story about a boat, maybe opt to show more than 1 small picture out of the 13 pictures in the story.
