Mercedes and Cigarette Racing are back together again. This time presented the “41’ AMG Carbon Edition” at the Miami International Boat Show. As the eleventh boat jointly developed in this longstanding partnership, this special edition sets new standards in terms of performance, handling and versatility. Its systematic lightweight construction and design are inspired by the current Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-door Coupé.
As its name implies, the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition comes filled with lightweight carbon-fibre components and an optimized centre of gravity for ideal handling. The hull of the 41-foot long vessel utilizes innovative sandwich construction with carbon-fibre structural laminates on both sides of a lightweight core. The deck, rudder, roof lining and hardtop of the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition are also made of carbon-fiber. Four Mercury Racing 400R outboard engines power the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition for a total output of 1177 kW (1,600 horsepower), providing it with a top speed of 142 km/h. The boat can carry eight passengers at maximum speed or up to 20 passengers at cruising speed.
The striking design of the boat is the result of close collaboration between the Cigarette Racing Team and Mercedes-Benz designers, who developed the paint finish and the graphic design of the hull. The hull is painted in designo graphite grey magno, a finish developed exclusively for the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door Coupé. The hallmark graphic design derives its special appeal from the contrast between matte and high-gloss areas interacting with bright red. The cockpit is equipped with three multifunctional 17-inch full-HD Garmin displays with touchscreens. The displays show GPS coordinates, navigation charts and engine/operating data. They can also be used to control the onboard ambient lighting.
On display in Miami was also the land-based role model for the Cigarette Racing 41’ AMG Carbon Edition, the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door Coupé. The Mercedes-AMG GT 63 is powered by a hand-built AMG 4.0-litre V8 biturbo engine developing 424 kW (577 hp) and 800 Nm of peak torque; the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S develops 463 kW (630 hp) and a peak torque of 900 Nm. This addition to the AMG GT family opens the segment up to customers seeking a vehicle which offers the impressive Driving Performance of the two-door AMG GT sports car combined with day-to-day suitability and ample space for four passengers.
