This 1,600 HP Super-Speedboat is Made to Keep Pace with the Amazing AMG GT 4-Door Coupe
Twins for the win.
Last year we waxed poetic about the new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe, a “musclebound monster” with a 630 hp engine that tops out at 195 mph.
Now as part of its ongoing partnership with Cigarette Racing – about which you’ll read much more in an upcoming issue of Maxim in print – the German automaker has just unveiled the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition at the Miami International Boat Show.
Debuted with an optioned-out AMG GT 4-Door painted in a matching menacing black and red racing livery, the super-speedboat was designed in collaboration with Gorden Wagener, Chief Design Officer of Mercedes parent Daimler AG and one of the industry’s top talents, who loves all things fast and beautiful.
The bodacious boat is powered by quadruple Mercury Racing 400R outboard engines with a total output of 1,600 hp, capable of boosting it to 72 knots or 83 mph – which feels more like 200 mph when you’re on the water.
The carbon-fiber components in the 41’ AMG Carbon Edition make it lighter, faster and more maneuverable, especially at high speeds.
The hull is painted in Benz’s Designo Graphite Grey Magno, a finish developed exclusively for the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-door Coupe, in alternating matte and high-gloss contrasting with bright red highlights.
The two-tone black and red interior is done in “Cigarette Cool” upholstery reflects heat while the cockpit is equipped with three 17-inch full-HD Garmin displays with touchscreens.
Both very cool vehicles on their own, but taken together – and parked side by side in your driveway – it’s an extremely badass duo that will provide plenty of thrills on both land and sea.
