Mercedes-Benz and Cigarette Racing converged upon the 2010 Miami International Boat Show last week to unveil a new 46-foot custom racing boat inspired by the automaker's SLS AMG supercar. In lieu of the Gullwing's lone 6.2-liter V8 engine, which puts out a measly 563 horsepower, the Cigarette boat offers a pair of twin-turbocharged 552-cubic-inch Mercury Racing engines. Each mill cranks out 1,350 horsepower. Yep, that's 2,700 total horsies. Giddyup.
The new Cigarette 46-foot Rider features hand-applied AMG ALUBEAM silver paint, as seen on the SLS AMG supercar. According to the automaker, its specially developed painting technique "covers body surfaces like a metallic skin, targeting light reflections to further emphasize exterior character lines and design details." We'll take their word for it.
Step inside the boat and you'll be greeted with marine-grade upholstery that's designed to resemble the two-tone porcelain and white Nappa leather offered on the SLS AMG. So far, there's no word on how much this custom Cigarette will go for, but something with a six-pack of zeros is virtually a lock. Check out our high-res image gallery below along with the complete press release after the break.
