Ahead of the Miami International Boat Show on February 12th, a teaser image of an upcoming speed boat inspired by the Mercedes-AMG GT sports car has been released.
The new boat is being developed between Mercedes-AMG itself as well as the Cigarette Racing Team and is promising a design reminiscent of the AMG GT. With that in mind, it will feature a bright yellow exterior finish like the initial Mercedes-AMG GT display car alongside a plethora of blacked out elements.
Additionally, the boat, set to be officially dubbed the Cigarette Racing 50 Marauder GT S concept, will include badging from AMG and a number of other yet-unknown AMG GT inspired elements.
As a reminder, the 2015 Mercedes-AMG GT comes with a mid-engine concept with transaxle and the intelligent aluminium lightweight construction. It has a newly developed AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine, which soon will also feature in the new C63 It is the first sports car engine with internally mounted turbochargers (“hot inside V”) and dry sump lubrication. It comes in two versions, the base AMG GT with 462 hp and as the Mercedes-AMG GT S with 510 hp. The AMG GT S will be available from March 2015 and the base AMG GT will follow towards the end of 2015.
The 510 hp figure of the Mercedes-AMG GT S is joined with 650 Nm of torque between 1750 and 4750 rpm. Consequently, it will rocket to 100 km/h in a mere 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 310 km/h.
