Mercedes Cigarette Racing 59’ Tirranna AMG Edition

There's a matching Mercedes-AMG G63 to go with it.

Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing are teaming up for the twelfth time, and this year they're premiering the 59’ Tirranna AMG Edition at the Miami International Boat Show. To match the boat, there's a one-off Mercedes-AMG G63 Cigarette Edition.

The Tirranna AMG Edition packs plenty of power from six supercharged 4.6-litre V8 Mercury Racing 450R outboard engines. Each one makes 450 bhp (336 kilowatts) for a total of 2,700 bhp (2,013 kW). This setup lets the boat reach up to 80 miles per hour (129 kilometres per hour) across the water. A gyrostabiliser reduces roll by 80 percent to help keep balanced in choppy water. For easier low-speed manoeuvrability when docking, there are thrusters at the bow and stern.

The interior of the boat has upholstery in a mix of macchiato beige and dark blue, and the material is heat reflective so people don't get too hot. The instrument panel features large, digital screens. The surrounding structure is a nano-coated surface that's anti-reflective and heat-resistant.

For entertainment, occupants can enjoy a 29-speaker, 5,200-watt stereo system. At the aft end, folks can make something to eat at a food prep area that includes a grill and sink. Below deck, there's a couch, refrigerator, California king-sized bed, and a bathroom with a shower. 

The Tirranna's matching G63 Cigarette Edition features the same exterior colour motif of metallic black and gold, including on the 22-inch cross-spoke wheels. A bullbar wraps around the lower fascia, and there are running boards along the sides. Inside, the upholstery is macchiato beige and dark blue Nappa leather. Cigarette Racing branding appears on the floor mats and passenger grab handle.
