The American Cigarette Racing Team and foreign car manufacturer Mercedes-AMG have joined forces in the form of a super-powered watercraft. We are as surprised as you are! Though the match for these two companies is a little out of left field, their partnership has been nothing but success thus far. One thing is for sure, however, this new creation fits in perfectly with any of the luxury properties in Palm Beach.
Specs of the new Cigarette Racing 50 Marauder GT S Concept
The 50-foot Marauder vessel, which was directly inspired by the all-new Mercedes-AMG GT S that made its world premiere at last year’s Paris Motor Show, boasts a similar v8 powertrain engine like its land equivalent. The difference between them is that this automotive-inspired boat needs two engines. The boat’s twin 1,550-hp Mercury Racing V8 engines will take the boat to a speed of 135 miles per hour, and the growl of 3,000 horsepower allows everyone within earshot to know that this super-powered, waterborne rocket ship is quickly approaching. Its paint scheme emulates its land brethren by holding constant with the exclusive AMG social-beam color and matte black highlights. Whether it’s by virtue of speed, or breathtaking good looks, the Cigarette Racing 50 Marauder GT S Concept sure turns heads.
How much does this head-turning vessel cost, you ask? Well, the 50 Marauder GT S Concept boat will set your wallet back around $1.2 million. Word is, an electric version is in the works as well. Wouldn’t that be something?
