Launched in September 2012, the emission-free Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Electric Drive which is described as the ‘world’s most powerful series production electric car’ has now inspired the creation of "Cigarette AMG Electric Drive Concept" engineering design, the latest development of Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing which will be launched at the Miami International Boat Show. Described to be the world’s most powerful and fastest electric drive powerboat electrified by Mercedes-Benz, the 38 foot long Cigarette AMG Electric Drive Concept with an output of 2,200 hp and a maximum torque of 3000 Newton meters is truly a fascinating new concept that cruises with a speed of 160 km/h. Cigarette Racing is however been working closely with Mercedes-AMG for several years, and has delivered impressive speedsters of the waters like the Cigarette racing boats inspired by Mercedes Benz AMG Black series, the Cigarette 46’ Rider XPspeedboat, and the 46-foot Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Cigarette boat which took its inspiration from Mercedes' SLS AMG supercar, to name a few.
Finished in AMG Electricbeam magno, the matt chrome paintwork exclusively reserved for the SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive, this fastest electrically driven motorboat impressively wears AMG logos on its sides, thus clearly communicating the alliance between the Miami-based boat manufacturer and Mercedes-AMG GmbH from Affalterbach Germany.
Notably, the entire design of the boat exemplifies the transfer of technology from the gullwing to the powerboat, which comes fitted with the twelve compact, liquid-cooled permanent-magnet synchronous electric motors, with each one delivering 138 kW and 250 Newton meters.
The boat further boasts a total of four lithium-ion high-voltage batteries via Formula 1 technology with an energy content of 60 Kilowatt hours.
