    Cigarette Racing Team’s 46' Rider, inspired by AMG edition Photo by Nue Vue Photography

    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.
