Mercedes-AMG published a teaser … boat

February 7, 2019 0 By autotimesnews

It’s clear that this is far from just a boat, but an ultra-fast one, which was created under the impression of a new 4-door coupe GT.

2019 marks twelve years of collaboration between the automaker Mercedes-Benz and the Cigarette Racing team, and what is the best way to mark this date if you do not release another special boat? After the last year the Cigarette Racing 515 Project ONE was launched, inspired by the One-car hypercar with the F1 engine, the new boat will be built in the image of the GT 4-Door Coupe.

The technical characteristics of the new high-speed boat are still unavailable, but there is no doubt that it will receive a huge amount of power, which will easily eclipse even the GT 63 S super sedan and its 630 “horses”.

In the end, last year’s motorboat has a combined power of 3100 hp, which comes from a pair of Mercury Racing engines with four V8s running on racing fuel. This is enough for a maximum speed of 225 km / h per hour. On the usual 91-octane fuel boat engines produced “only” 2700 hp

From the little information that our friends insiders have so far, we learn that the chief designer of the German group Daimler, Gorden Wagener, was responsible for the appearance of the motorboat. Combined with the experience of Cigarette Racing in this area, it “will surely make your heart beat faster,” says a message on Facebook published on the official page of Mercedes-AMG.

Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing Team will present a new boat on February 14 at the International Boat Show in Miami in 2019.
