Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing Celebrates The 12th Special Edition 59′ Tirranna AMG Edition & The Mercedes-AMG G 63 Cigarette Edition.
Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing recently presented the all-new 59′ Tirranna AMG Edition alongside a one-of-a-kind Mercedes-AMG G 63 Cigarette Edition. The 59′ Tirranna AMG Edition is jointly developed by Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing, and it represents the 12th special edition boat resulting from the strategic collaboration. Alongside the recent debut is the the Mercedes-AMG G 63 Cigarette Edition which was individualised at the AMG Performance Studio in Affalterbach, following the same design principles as the boat.
The 59′ Tirranna AMG Edition sets new standards in terms of performance and design, striking the perfect balance between a luxury yacht and a performance oriented super console. The 59′ Tirranna AMG Edition is extremely agile and is optimised for high performance.
A Look Back At The Collaboration Between Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing
The Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing collaboration began in 2007, primarily for the organisation of joint customer and marketing related activities. Whether on land or on water, Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing are united by their focus on delivering the ultimate in performance. The two special edition models for water and road share the same interpretation of Performance Luxury – the brand aesthetic that has been defined for Mercedes-AMG. This turns them into a perfect technological and optical match.
High Performance On Water
The Cigarette Racing Team 59′ Tirranna AMG Edition has with it a staggering total of 2,700 horsepower produced by six supercharged 4.6 V8 Mercury Racing 450R outboard engines, each producing 450 peak propshaft horsepower. This enables the 59′ Tirranna AMG Edition to reach a top speed of 80 mph or about 69.5 knots. On water, that is a remarkable performance figure for a boat of this scale. The 59′ Tirranna AMG Edition caters for 26 people onboard, and it combines the ease-of-use of a centre console with style, spaciousness and performance of a luxury sport boat.
There are thoughtful technical details placed within the 59′ Tirranna AMG Edition in enhancing the overall ease-of-use. One of which features a unique gyrostabiliser which decreases the boat’s roll by 80%, and this will highly be handy when stationary in choppy waters besides aiding in tendering to a large yacht. The boat also features both bow and stern thrusters, making docking very simple for a boat of this size.
The 59′ Tirranna AMG Edition employs the state-of-the-art materials in its build within key locations: its raked hardtop is made completely out of carbon fibre, reducing the vertical centre of gravity for better handling. This is whilst carbon fibre is also featured throughout its superstructure, with carbon-capped stringers and carbon-fibre transom. The hull and deck are vacuum infused using a highly optimised composite laminate schedule with PVC coring. The instrument panel is nano-coated solid surface that is anti-reflective and heat-resistant, which also features titanium fasteners.
The Language of Performance Luxury
The layout of the boat’s lower level features a large sofa with a cabinet concealing a refrigerator, extra storage and a television. Moving further forward is a California king sized bed and a large enclosed bathroom with a separate shower.
Outside, a summer kitchen at the aft features a grill, sink, food preparation station and storage for convenient outdoor dining. The aft face of the hardtop on deck integrates a 7′ electric awning system which is capable of fully covering the aft cockpit area. Both the forward and aft-facing lounges in the rear section of the boat electrically combine to form a large sun lounge, which is ideal for relaxation. Tables in the front of the boat can be raised or lowered for dining.
The interior is laden with premium leather cabin upholstery which is handcrafted, while on the upper deck, is an upholstery which is able to reflect up to 30 percent of the absorbed heat. This technology enabled the possibility of a darker colour choice on deck while retaining a comfortable and luxurious atmosphere. Three windows on each side of the hull provide a sea-view from within the cabin interior while skylights in both the hardtop and the cabin create a bright and spacious feel in the interior. Skylight blinds can be closed when privacy is desired.
The 59′ Tirranna AMG Edition features a 29-speaker, 5,200-watt sound system, named the Cigarette Pure Plus, which is jointly developed by Cigarette Racing and JL Audio Marine. The control and switching systems within the boat is digitalised, controllable from various locations throughout the boat and via an iPad. From lighting at the helm and cabin air conditioners to monitoring the bilge pumps, control is just within a swipe or a touch of a button. This system also decreases the amount of cabling required in the boat, ultimately reducing overall weight.
Driving Performance On Land
With the performance statistics being similar to the Mercedes-AMG G 63, the Mercedes-AMG G 63 Cigarette Edition differs by way of exclusiveness through an outstanding handcrafted individualisation executed at the AMG Performance Studio in Affalterbach. It embodies a unique celebration of the ongoing collaboration between Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing Team by sharing exclusive design finishes and special detailing that can only be found on this specific model.
The Mercedes-AMG G 63 Cigarette Edition spots a special exterior in black metallic complemented by the unique golden designed AMG diamond pattern. The new 22″ inch Mercedes-AMG cross-spoke forged wheels are further highlighted with gold accents at the wheel centre caps and at the rim flange. The Mercedes-AMG G 63 Cigarette Edition features AMG Night Package elements, a dark chrome AMG specific radiator grille, and the bullbar as well as the side entry boards in matt black whereas the vehicle logos are glossy black.
The interior of the G-Class – for the first time in line with the interior of the boat – features macchiato beige and dark blue two-tone exclusive nappa leather upholstery, as well as an AMG performance steering wheel in carbon fibre with dark blue nappa leather based on the interior of the boat. The unique floor mats and the iconic G-Class grad handle both are featuring the Cigarette lettering.
