Cigarette Unveiling AMG-Inspired Huntress—And More— in Miami


Cigarette Racing Team will pull the sheet of a Mercedes-AMG-inspired 42’ Huntress performance center console at the 2013 Miami International Boat Show, according to a press release from the Opa-Locka, Fla., custom high-performance powerboat company. The release of the 42-footer marks the latest collaborative venture between the luxury sports automobile and iconic go-fast boat brands.

It is not, however, the last—or the largest in terms of impact. In fact, according to Skip Braver, the owner and chief executive officer of Cigarette Racing, the AMG-inspired Huntress is just the “tip of the iceberg” when it comes to the ongoing collaboration between Cigarette and Mercedes-AMG.

“This is far from the only thing we’ll have at the Miami Show,” said Braver in a brief telephone interview this morning. “We are going to be unveiling an unbelievable new technology that’s the result of a collaboration between Cigarette and AMG.”

Braver declined to elaborate beyond that.

“People will just have to come to the press conference and attend the release at our booth on Thursday (Feb. 14) at 10:45 a.m.,” he said.
