Today at the Miami International Boat Show, Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing joined forces for the fifth consecutive year to present the all-new 2016 Mercedes-AMG GT S and Cigarette Racing 50 Marauder GT S Concept. As the most powerful production twin engine performance boat, the Cigarette Racing 50 Marauder GT S Concept combines the characteristic styling and advanced motorsport technology of the Mercedes-AMG GT S. Incorporating an AMG Solarbeam Yellow painted exterior with custom matte black accents, the new concept boat was designed to mimic the character of the Mercedes-AMG GT S that will be on display alongside it.
With the launch of the Mercedes-AMG GT S in April, Mercedes-AMG is introducing a revolutionary new sports car that combines driving dynamics with racetrack performance with innovative design. Its front mid-engine design and use of lightweight aluminum construction form the basis for an enhanced driving experience. The newly developed AMG 4.0-liter V-8 biturbo engine develops 503 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque, propelling the car from 0 – 60 mph in 3.7 seconds.
Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing have been collaborating since 2007, primarily for organizing joint customer and marketing activities. Whether on land or water, performance is what unites Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing. Similar to its Mercedes-AMG super sports counterpart, the 38′ to 55′ long powerboat from the American specialists is amongst the world’s fastest.
