Mercedes x Cigarette 515 Project One - Inventing the Hyperboat - TheArsenale

Mercedes and Cigarette Racing have been working for a long time together, often creating insane boats. Up till now there have been eight special edition boats directly inspired by Mercedes sports cars.

The 515 Project One boat measures at 15.7m long and has a widened beam of 2.9m. This means that it's roomier than the usual Cigarette offerings, sitting 6 people in complete comfort. Built out of kevlar, e-glass and carbon fiber, it has a relatively lightweight regimen to match its automotive counterpart. The carbon fiber deck also improves handling as it lowers the center of mass. There is also a race-style cabin that offers a cooler, a forward bed, LED lighting, dual Garmin 8212 navigation touchscreens, a JL Audio System and also a carbon fiber gauge cluster.

The 515 Project One is not only slick paintjobs and luxurious amenities; it also means business. Powered by dual Mercury Racing 1,350/1,550 Quad Cam 4 Valve engines and M8 stern drives, it can go up to 225 km/h on open water. If that's not enough, pour some race fuel in it and activate Race Mode. You will then unlock the full 3,100 hp of the boat that will bolt you to the seat like a race car. Until now, it's a one-off piece but Cigarette will be quoting prices by request.
