The new Cigarette 41’ Nighthawk AMG Black Series perfectly translates the shared philosophies between AMG and Cigarette, resulting in a truly remarkable special edition boat. With its dramatic proportions, benchmark-setting power and striking design, the new Nighthawk AMG Black Series delivers Mercedes-AMG’s legendary performance from its awe-inspiring Black Series model, creating an equally compelling role model on the water.
Driving performance on land: The AMG GT Black Series
As the inspiration model for the new Cigarette 41’ Nighthawk AMG Black Series, the AMG GT Black Series makes waves of its own with regards to its performance capabilities. This halo model offers the most powerful AMG V8 production engine, a highly expressive design, sophisticated aerodynamics and an intelligent material mix, creating optimal dynamics and vehicle balance. Featuring a Handcrafted AMG V8 engine producing 730 hp, the new Black Series embodies AMG’s roots in motorsport – together with a design derived directly from the current AMG GT3 race car.
The heart of the all-new AMG GT Black series is the new Handcrafted AMG V8 engine featuring a flat- plane crankshaft, developing 730 hp from 6,700-6,900 rpm, with a peak torque of 590 lb-ft available from 2,000-6,000 rpm. This new engine lends the Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series a completely unique character while enabling remarkable driving performance. The new AMG GT Black Series accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds and can reach 124 mph in under nine seconds. The top speed is 202 mph.
High performance on water
Like the AMG GT Black Series, this special edition boat also sets new standards in performance within its segment. For example, the new 41’ Nighthawk AMG Edition is the first in its model range to feature five racing-grade outboard engines. These five 4.6-liter V8 Mercury Racing 450R outboard engines create an industry-leading 450 peak propshaft horsepower each, and are controlled via an advanced shadowing throttle system, which allows only two levers to be used to control all five engines simultaneously.
The combined 2,250 output accelerates this new special edition boat to a remarkable top speed of more than 90 MPH. This is an achievement of particularly high significance for a boat in this large center console segment, which can comfortably hold more than ten people and still feature exceptional luxury amenities.
