FrontRunners: Drag Queen

    Unveiled at the Miami International Boat Show in February, Cigarette Racing Team’s 46' Rider, inspired by AMG edition (www.cigaretteracing.com), takes its design cues from the 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. The boat’s most obvious similarities to the car are its paint color—AMG alubeam silver, one of the options available on the SLS—and its marine-grade upholstery, which is reminiscent of the vehicle’s white napa leather interior and two-tone seats. Additionally, many of the watercraft’s motorized components—from the propulsion system to the rigging—evoke the SLS. The 46' Rider is powered by two twin-turbocharged 1,350 hp Mercury Racing engines capable of propelling the boat to speeds in excess of 130 mph. The boat is priced at $1 million and, at press time, was slated to be available this summer.
