Remember the old Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups commercial slogan, “Two great tastes that taste great together”? Well, we may have found the automotive equivalent.
Yes, that’s a Mercedes-AMG GT3 alongside a Cigarette Racing boat. Both are on display at the Miami International Boat Show. The AMG GT3 has a 6.3-liter V8 under the hood with power running through a 6-speed sequential racing gearbox. The Mercedes-Benz press release says the boat “is powered by a pair of Mercury Racing 1,100-horsepower engines with NXT6 drives. The 41-foot-long and 11-foot-beam boat is able to achieve an estimated prop-limited top speed of more than 100 miles per hour with a focus on big water performance.”
Sure, a high-dollar, high-performance Mercedes-Benz race car alongside a Cigarette Racing boat at the Miami Boat Show sounds like the premise of a revived “Miami Vice” TV show. However, if you’re lucky enough to be anywhere near South Beach, it might be worth checking out.
