In 2018, the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S was a big hit among car enthusiasts. One of its biggest features is the 630-horsepower engine that pushes it up to 195 mph. Fans of the German marque have nothing but praises for this very capable machine. The fact that it’s so rare to encounter a performance car with four doors, makes it such an awesome ride. The automaker is ready to take the hype up another notch with the introduction of a special item. The 41′ AMG Carbon Edition is about to make a big splash of its own and we are trembling with excitement.
The sleek and sexy speedboat made its debut at the 2019 Miami International Boat Show. It’s actually the eleventh collaboration project together with Cigarette Racing. Drawing inspiration from the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S, the upcoming vessel will showcase top-notch handling, versatility, and performance. This stunning watercraft flaunts it racing roots with four Mercury Racing 400R outboard engines. The quadruple configuration produces a total of 1,600 horsepower, which more than enough to push it up to 72 knots.
The 41′ AMG Carbon Edition boasts a lightweight construction thanks to the generous use of carbon fiber and composite materials. Overall, its approximately 250 kg lighter than the company’s 2017 GT R Performance boat. Sources indicate that uses an innovative sandwich construction structural laminates to keep its hull rigid and durable. Moreover, this lightweight approach also lowers the vessel’s center of gravity to improve its handling. To commemorate its release, the carmaker also reveals a companion vehicle with matching red and black livery.
