Mercedes AMG and Cigarette. Two brands for the promise of power, power, and power. Now they come with a new collaboration: The Cigarette 50 Marauder - inspired by the new Mercedes GT S AMG design.

Actually, I am a guy who gives the best to live eco-friendly. Home and office are powered and heated by a micro-CHP which consumes low-emission natural gas, solar panels on the roof, heat accumulator under the building and a good insulation. The web and e-mail servers are also powered by green energy. But I have another site – my personal dark site: V8 sound and power awake a lot of emotions :). AMG and Cigarette are manufacturers who build the tools for starting them :)

Always I have to think about Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor and his catchphrase:

“More Power”

when I hear or drive a V8

The Cigarette 50 Marauder isn’t powered by the 4.0l V8 AMG engine. She has two new developed Mercury 1550 HP racing engines which are also inspired by AMG (according to the press release). It’s currently the most powerful twin-engine boat in Cigarette’s portfolio. She reaches a top speed of 135 MPH.

Tobias Moers, Chairman of the Board of Management of Mercedes-AMG says:

“With its technological substance, the Mercedes-AMG GT S meets our high demands on driving dynamics, agility and performance. The GT S is built according to the motto ‘Handcrafted by Racers’. We are glad that this spirit and our brand-typical driving performance inspired our long-time partner Cigarette Racing to create this powerboat.”

Skip Braver, CEO of Cigarette Racing adds:

“We are thrilled to work with the high-performance brand of Mercedes-Benz again this year to develop our fastest powerboat to date. With the two new Mercury racing engines inspired by AMG, the 50 Marauder GT-S Concept embodies our brand promise of innovation and master craftsmanship“
