Mercedes’ SLA AMG Inspires Similarly Swift Cigarette Boat

In what seems to aficionados of speed like an act of divine providence, one of the world’s swiftest super cars—the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG—has inspired one of the world’s swiftest boats. At this year’s Miami Boat Show, Florida-based boat builder Cigarette Racing unveiled the dramatic “Inspired by AMG” Rider, a 46-foot speedboat engineered with assistance from Mercedes’ in-house performance tuner. Like Mercedes-AMG’s legendarily quick cars, Cigarette’s boats, made famous by appearances in the 1980s TV series Miami Vice, feature dramatic proportions—a very generous overall length and a relatively narrow beam—with prodigious power and top speeds in excess of 100 mph.
