Powerboat and motorsports brands team up in Miami
Friday 18 February 2011
US powerboat maker Cigarette Racing has expanded its relationship with other motorsports brands to showcase a "menage of motorsports" at this weekend's Miami Boat Show.
Cigarette Racing, known for its collaboration with Mercedes AMG which gave the world the AMG 46' Cigarette at last year's Miami show, this year welcomed sports bike manufacturer Ducati into the fold.
The partnership has resulted in the Cigarette 42X Ducati Edition, customized with Ducati's bold red stripe and boasting a pair of 1,100 HP engine which Cigarette says are a bridge between the SCi engines used in many of its boats and the 1,350 HP engines used for the AMG 46' Cigarette.
It also features a new sound system designed in partnership with JL Audio, which is said to provide immersion rather than "blaring on board music."
In addition to the powerboats and Ducati bikes on Cigarette's stand at the Miami show will be the gullwing Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT-3 race car, specially flown over from Germany for the event.
Visitors can see the The Miami Boat Show, which runs through February 21 in Miami, Florida.
Other highlights of the show include the newly-unveiled Marlow Explorer 97E, the largest Marlow Explorer to date and several new models from Ferretti Yachts, including the Aquariva Gucci, a model customized by Gucci's creative director Frida Giannini.
