Cigarette and AMG Launch 42' Huntress Speed Boat

Mercedes-AMG

AMG's latest project leaves the road, and land, behind for calmer seas churned up by 1,750 horsepower.

If you're looking to traverse land at rapid pace, you're going to want a Mercedes G63 AMG. Powered by a twin-turbo V8 with 536 horsepower and 560 lb-ft of torque, the G63 will cover any terrain, long after the road has ended, and hardly slow down in the process. But what about where the land itself has ended? That sounds like a job for a Cigarette speed boat. Mercedes-AMG and the Cigarette Racing Team have collaborated on a handful of projects before, and this is their latest effort.

Set to be unveiled on Feburaury 14 at the Miami International Boat Show, the new Cigarette 42' Huntress is a motorboat with AMG levels of power. Measuring 42 feet long and 12 feet wide, the Huntress draws its inspiration from the G63. Just take a look at how much muscle it packs: off the stern hangs a set of five outboard engines - Mercury Verado supercharged inline sixes with electronic sequential multi-port fuel injection and four-valve cylinder heads - each producing 350 horsepower for a combined output of 1750 hp. That's a whole lot of juice, and is capable of propelling the giant to a 78mph top speed. In nautical terms, that's incredibly fast... as in, AMG fast.
