The company Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing will develop a new sports boat. The superfast boat will be named Cigarette Racing 515 Project ONE and will be presented in Miami next week. Judging by the teaser image, the design of the new boat will resemble Hybrid Hypercar Project One.

All the technical characteristics of the pubis are kept secret. The basis for the power plant of the same name hypercar became a 1.6-liter unit V6, capable of spinning up to 11,000 rpm. In the engine, pneumatic distributors were used instead of standard spring valves, as well as a turbocharger with an electric drive. The return of the hybrid power plant Project One exceeded 1000 horsepower.

This is not the first experience of cooperation between Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing. Previously, these companies have been engaged in the development of boats. Last year they set up a sports boat in the style of the AMG GT R model, which is the fastest sports car in the line of the German brand. Over the exterior of the boat worked chief designer of the concern Daimler Gorden Wagener. The novelty is equipped with two motors, the total capacity of which is more than 3000 horsepower.

At the moment, a number of automotive companies have paid attention to luxury yachts and boats. So, Lexus introduced the conceptual ship Sport Yacht Concept. The yacht was equipped with two 5.0-liter petrol V8 engines. Such units are installed on cars RC-F and LC 500. The total power of the yacht is 885 horsepower. The maximum speed is 79 km per hour.

In turn, Bugatti has developed a sports yacht Niniette 66. The creation of the vessel was carried out jointly with the company Palmer Johnson. The yacht’s design is made in the style of the hypercar Chiron. The novelty is a modified version of the yacht Niniette, which was shown at the end of 2015. The length of the vessel is 20 meters. The maximum speed of the boat is 82 km per hour. The novelty has got a folding top that can be pushed in case of bad weather. When finishing Niniette 66, we used carbon, leather and oak. The yacht includes a SPA, a bar, and a special place for arranging a fire. Prices for the boat will be more than 2 million euros.
