Mercedes AMG Vision Gran Turismo and Cigarette Racing Vision GT Concepts shown in Miami

One of the coolest cars that Mercedes has produced in a long time was a digital concept car made specifically for the racing game Gran Turismo called the Vision Gran Turismo. That virtual supercar spawned a real world concept car that looks every bit as sexy as the virtual car. Mercedes in the past created a show car that went along with a Cigarette racing boat inspired by the C63 AMG SUV.

Mercedes and Cigarette have teamed up again to show off a couple concept products at the Miami International Boat Show. This time out the Mercedes concept is a real world version of the AMG Vision Gran Turismo Concept.

The boat is the Cigarette racing 50' Vision GT Concept. The Mercedes car is a 1:1 scale model of the virtual car from the game. It appears that the car is not a running and driving vehicle. The boat has a pair of 1650hp Mercury Racing Engines. Those massive engines each product 300hp more than the standard engines used in the 50' Cigarette Marauder.

The boat is also lighter than the standard version with 1000 pounds removed from the standard weight. With 600 more hp and 1000 pounds less to push through the water, the Cigarette Racing 50' Vision GT concept is able to hit 140mph on the water. Unlike the Mercedes car, the concept boat is available to purchase for a cool $1.5 million.
