detailed pics and more info on the SLS AMG-inspired boat

Quote:
Call it the ultimate accessory. It’s a 2,700 hp boat built to match a 563 hp supercar. Cigarette Racing assembled a 46-foot Rider boat to match the Mercedes SLS AMG gullwing, and both vehicles were available for comparison at the Supercar Experience in West Palm Beach, Florida this weekend...

The boat takes advantage of special painting techniques to match the SLS’s available color AMG Alubeam silver. In the sunlight the silver sparkles and provides a good contrast to the plain with that’s also the boat’s other major color. It’s almost a shame that much of this paintwork will be covered by bikini-clad women (almost). Just in case people don’t recognize the likenesses to the car on the high seas, it also has a large AMG logo on each side...

The SLS AMG comes with just about everything but a tow hitch. So that means it will take another vehicle to pull the gullwing’s ultimate accessory. Of course anyone who can afford about a quarter million dollars worth of car -- and likely much more for the boat -- should have no trouble finding a vehicle to lug this future drug runner (in keeping with the MB theme, may we suggest the Mercedes Unimog.)
