Mercedes-AMG And Cigarette Racing’s New 41’ AMG Carbon Edition Has 1,600 Sea Horses

Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing have collaborated on a new speedboat, the eleventh in their longstanding partnership.

It’s called the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition and has just been unveiled at the Miami International Boat Show. And as the name suggests, it’s a special edition boat inspired by the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door Coupé.

If you’re curious what these two vehicles have in common, besides the attractive paint scheme, it’s the lightweight construction. As with the car, the speedboat features carbon fiber components that contribute to a lower center of gravity during high-speed maneuvers.

Obviously, that’s good for handling, both on land and on water. Compared to the GT R Performance boat from 2017, the Cigarette Racing team engineers managed to save around 250 kg (551 lbs) of weight thanks to a mix of lightweight materials, including carbon fiber.

The hull of the 41-ft (12.5-m) long boat uses a sandwich construction with carbon-fiber structural laminates on both sides of a lightweight core. As a result, the structure is more rigid and the weight is reduced. Carbon fiber is also used for the deck, rudder, roof lining, and hardtop of the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition.

Power comes from four AMG GT 63 S V8s Mercury Racing 400R outboard engines that produce a total of 1,600 PS (1,578 hp), enabling a top speed of 142 km/h (88 mph). That is an extraordinary performance on the water, especially since the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition can reach that speed with eight people on board. At cruising speed, it can accommodate up to 20 passengers — yes, it’s a big one.

Styled with input from Mercedes-Benz designers, the speedboat boasts a designo graphite grey magno paint for the hull with bright red accents, a special color that has been developed exclusively for the GT 4-door Coupé. Inside, the boat features Mercedes-AMG influences such as tailored seat upholstery color-coordinated with the exterior and the seam patterns exclusively designed for the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition.
