Joining the Cigarette 42′ Huntress inspired by the Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG is the Cigarette AMG Electric Drive Concept, an electrically-driven motor boat inspired by the SLS AMG Coupe Electric Drive.

Being boasted as the world’s most powerful and fastest electrically-driven motor boat, the Cigarette AMG Electric Drive Concept has an output of 2,200 hp and a maximum torque of 2,213 lb-ft and measures in at 38 feet long. Fittingly, the boat is finished in AMG Electricbeam magno shade, the same matte-chrome paint job that made the SLS AMG Electic Drive famous.

Completely emission-free, the maximum output will allow the boat to hit a top speed of over 99 mph.
