AMG and Cigarette Team Up to Create Das Racing Boot
Sometimes pairings are nothing but perfection, like the warm chocolate cake and melted chocolate heart of a moelleux au chocolat. Sometimes they don't fare so well, like when Lohan met Ungaro. And sometimes they just make you go "All right, maybe this can work...", like when IKEA paired a lamp commercial with a Bergman film.
We have no idea what Mercedes' AMG division and Cigarette racing boats will come up with together, but we have no reason to think it'll be anything but slick. They have paired to introduce a "Cigarette Racing boat inspired by AMG," which will debut at next February's Miami International Boat Show.
Specifically, the boat will pull emulate the depth of technological innovations on the gullwinged SLS AMG. While we don't expect that to mean it will use the SLS AMG's exploding door bolts -- sadly -- the "offshore racer will feature more than 100 innovations included in the design, development and rigging of the boat." And it will go more than 120 mph. That's the kind of inspiration that needs no explanation.
