Cigarette Racing has been a standard-bearer in the world of powerboats for much of the past four decades, while Mercedes-AMG has held a similar position in the world of performance cars.
So when these two powerhouses come together, something fast, powerful, and immensely expensive is bound to happen.
That’s exactly what we have with the $US1.2 million 50 Marauder GT S Concept. Powered by a pair of 1,550 HP V8 Mercury Racing engines, Cigarette Racing claims it is the most powerful production twin-engine performance boat on the market. With 3,100 horsepower on tap, the Cigarette Marauder can hit an estimated top speed of more than 135 mph.
To pair with the $US1.2 million 50 foot-long performance boat, there’s the all-new Mercedes-AMG GT. Powered by a 503-horsepower, 4.0-liter biturbo V8, the GT is the latest offering from the Mercedes’ AMG performance division. When put to the test, the AMG GT is able to do 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.
“With its technological substance the Mercedes-AMG GT S meets our high demands on driving dynamics, agility and performance,”Chairman Mercedes-AMG Tobias Moers said.
“The GT S is built according to the motto ‘Handcrafted by Racers.’ We are glad that this spirit and our brand-typical driving performance inspired our long-time partner Cigarette Racing to create this powerboat.”
The AMG-badged Cigarette Racing 50 Marauder GT S Concept made its world debut at the Miami International Boat Show in February.
The Cigarette Racing 50 Marauder GT S Concept has quite the high-tech cockpit.
The Marauder has seating for 5, a banging stereo and some really cool AMG badging.
And those engines! This is what 3,100 horsepower looks like.
