For a dozen years, Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing has showcased a new Mercedes-inspired speed boat at the Miami International Boat Show. This year, with the 59-foot Tirranna AMG Edition boat comes the matching Mercedes-AMG G 63 Cigarette Edition SUV. 

“Despite its 59′ length and 14′ beam, the Tirranna AMG Edition is extremely agile and optimized for high performance,” Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing said in their news release.

“When designing their new performance flagship, the Cigarette Racing Team engineers focused their attention on every detail, for example by utilizing lightweight construction in key locations: Its raked hardtop is made completely of carbon fiber, reducing the vertical center of gravity for better handling, while carbon fiber also features throughout its superstructure, with carbon-capped stringers and a carbon-fiber transom. 

“The hull and deck are vacuum infused using a highly optimized composite laminate schedule with PVC coring. The instrument panel is a nano-coated solid surface that is anti-reflective and heat-resistant, which also features titanium fasteners.”

“Mercedes-AMG stands for Performance Luxury. The Tirranna AMG Edition is the perfect transfer of this principle to a boat: Its dynamic and at the same time deeply sensual proportions embody athletic beauty,” according to Gorden Wagener, chief designer for Daimler AG.

The boat carries 6 supercharged, 4.6-liter Mercury Racing 450R outboard engines, each rated at 450 horsepower. With 2,700 total horsepower, the 59-foot boat can reach a speed of 80 mph.

The boat is large enough to carry as many as 26 people and has a cabin with a California king-sized bed.

The one-off G 63 SUV has a 577-horsepower 4.0-liter biturbo V8, features dark chrome grille and other exterior accents, and rides on 22-inch forged wheels.  The interior features macchiato beige and dark blue two-tone exclusive nappa leather upholstery that matches the color scheme of the boat.
