Mercedes AMG Has Built A 3,100 Horsepower Cigarette Boat
February 21st, 2017
Mercedes AMG and Cigarette Racing have made driving performance possible both on land and on water. The two companies are marking their 10 years of collaboration together with the new 2017 Marauder AMG, which was inspired by the Mercedes AMG GT R. And get this. It puts out 3,100 horsepower. It was unveiled at the Miami International Boat Show.
The boat is 50 feet long and made mostly of carbon fiber, which help shed more than 1,300 pounds from the design. The boat is powered by a pair of Mercury Racing 1550/1350 QC4V engines, which are 9.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8s. There’s so much power it requires two keys to unleash it all. One key sets the dual calibration engines at 1,350 horsepower each. The second key opens up the quad cam, four valve engines to push out 1,550 horsepower each, which then gives the driver a total of 3,100 horsepower. The “Green Hell Magno” color was taken straight from the GT R along with commemorative badging on the deck on the 8 that are being made.
