What, you think you’re hot stuff with that 720-hp 2021 Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series? Please. It’s all about the four-figure club these days, and until the Mercedes-AMG One hypercar hits the road, then you’re outta luck if you want a Merc to meet this power quota. Well, at least if you’re a landlubber. Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing just collaborated on their thirteenth powerboat—a craft that packs a whopping 2,250 hp—for the salt-stained folk with a mound of cash growing mold.
A real wilting daisy, that. This whacko power comes from a set of five 450-hp 4.6-liter V-8s from Mercury Racing, enough to push this striking orange boat to a top speed of 90 mph. Even when docked up in the Florida Keys slip, no one will mistake you for slow; Cigarette Racing teamed up with the Mercedes-AMG design team and design chief Gordon Wagner to create a hyper-aggressive powerboat inspired by the terrestrial GT Black Series, and it sure looks the part.
The end result is orange—very, very orange. Based on Cigarette’s 41-foot Nighthawk model, the appropriately named Cigarette 41′ Nighthawk AMG Black Series boat wears a distinctive shade of Magmabeam Orange with contrasting white, black, and orange interior appointments. There’s a lot of interior stuff to check out, too, as there’s seating for 10 of your closest friends or attractive randos you pick up from the wharf. Naturally, AMG branding peppers the cabin, so you won’t have to worry about folks mistaking you for some non-Mercedes fan. For the full story, check out this article from Motor Trend.
