Just like the SLS AMG inspired Cigarette racing boat, Mercedes' performance arm AMG has teamed up with Cigarette racing once again to create the Black Series 50' Marauder Cigarette boat. It takes its inspiration from the C63 AMG Black Series that is due to be unleashed on US dealerships from April.

Whilst its inspirationa 510hp 6.3-liter V8, the Cigarette boat gets a couple of Mercury Racing engines that generate 1350 horsepower each. That results in a total output of 2,700hp (2,013kW / 2,737PS).

The exterior of the boat takes the black and white theme of the C63 AMG Black Series and it also incorporates more than 100 billet aluminum accents in areas such as the dash, grab handles, seat supports and sound system.

The new Black Series 50' Marauder Cigarette boat was officially unveiled for public viewing at the 2012 Miami Boast Show that took place last weekend. Full details are available in the press release below.

Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing took their alliance to a new level with the debut of the "Black Series" 50' Marauder Cigarette boat, inspired by the C63 AMG Black Series

While each brand's products always exemplify the ultimate in performance and luxury, the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series and Inspired by AMG "Black Series" 50' Marauder represent the next level in excellence.

Arriving in U.S. dealerships this April, the C63 AMG Black Series is the most powerful C-Class of all time, boasting a maximum output of 510 hp and a maximum torque of 457 lb-ft. The high-revving AMG 6.3-liter V8 delivers a 0-60 sprint in just 4.2 seconds and a top speed of 186 mph.

Introduced at the 2012 Miami Boat Show, the Inspired by AMG "Black Series" 50' Marauder features striking black and white design scheme is carried throughout from the Mercedes color-matched paint to the all-newly designed interior, upholstered with luxurious Alcantara.

Billet aluminum pieces -more than 100-are integrated throughout, customized for the AMG Black Series boat, incorporating a new formula of anodizing and corrosion resistance. Billet is featured on the dash, grab handles, seat supports, sound system and in numerous trim accents.

Powered by two Mercury Racing 1350 (2700 total hp.) engines, the boat's speed is matched only by its smooth efficiency, running on pump fuel, without headers, with a warranty, combining for an exciting day on the water for the most discerning performance boat aficionado.

Founded upon mutual respect and product admiration, Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing have developed a long-standing professional relationship. In 2010, Cigarette Racing revealed the "Inspired by AMG" 46' Rider, inspired by the SLS AMG.

The Cigarette 46' Rider featured hand-applied AMG ALUBEAM silver paintwork, also available on the SLS AMG. This process, used exclusively by AMG, covers body surfaces like a metallic skin, targeting light reflections to further emphasize exterior character lines and design details.

This is all marketing and it's so ridiculous. The boat does not have Mercedes Benz Engine. It's just a fast/floating billboard. This isn't news worthy on this site.

I can almost guarantee that one of the seniors at MB USA is into his poker run boats, hence the AMG themes.

Irony of this 'black series' is that it looks absolutely sick in white. And I mean that in a good way.
