‘world’s fastest electric speedboat’ by mercedes-benz AMG + cigarette racing



the high-performance drive technology from the mercedes-benz SLS AMG electric sports car has been fitted into a cigarette racing off-shore powerboat to created the world’s most powerful and fastest electrically driven motor boat. launched in time for the miami international boat show, the 38 foot (11.6 meter) long offshore water craft outputs 2,200 horsepower producing a maximum torque of 2,213 ft-lb. it’s also capable of reaching top speeds of over 160 km/h using formula 1 derived lithium-ion high-voltage battery technology.


the powerboat is fitted with two 22-kilowatt on-board chargers from the ‘SLS AMG’ coupé electric drive as standard – fully charging in approximately seven hours, with additional options to reduce charging to less than three hours.
