Cigarette 59 Tirranna AMG Edition luxury and performance.
For 13 years there has been a collaboration between Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing Team with 12 unique boats produced and as many unique models of cars built.
Although the two companies operate in two completely different sectors, auto manufacturers Mercedes-AMG and Cigarette Racing builder of fast boats, the two companies share the same ideas of aesthetics and power and with creativity and skill, through a continuous exchange of experience and technologies, every year they manage to create exclusive models for land and water. Other companies have attempted a collaboration of this type but have not succeeded.
This year 2020 the AMG and Cigarette Racing Team in collaboration have created a special edition version of the 59-foot Tirranna AMG boat and the Mercedes-AMG 63 SUV.
These two special specimens complement each other aesthetically and technologically and share exclusive finishes and designs and special details that can only be found on these specific models.
In this regard, Skip Braver owner and CEO of Cigarette has released the following statement:
“The 59 Tirranna, which we launched in Miami last year, kicked off the Cigarette Hyper-Luxury series, which combines maximum luxury with exceptional performance.” “This is in our DNA – an integral element of the cigarette difference – so it makes perfect sense to partner with Mercedes-AMG on this spectacular boat.”
Skip Braver was referring to the boat 59 Tiranna built to celebrate 50 years of offshore racing of the Cigarette Racing Team launched on the market last year 2019. This 18-meter-long luxury sports boat with central console is powered by a Mercury outboard sextet Racing 400R of the Verando 400 hp line for a total power of 2,400 hp, a record then for boats, “standard” with the boat reaching a maximum speed of 114 km / h equal to about 70 mph.
Although the 59 Tirranna was already a good boat, the Cigarette Racing Team sought the best solutions for every detail during the development of the Tirranna 59 AMG Edition.
Although 59 feet (about 18 meters) in length and 14 feet (4.2 meters) wide, this new model is truly agile and optimized for maximum performance thanks to a hardtop always built in carbon fiber but entirely inclined, which lowers the center of gravity and ensures better handling on the water.
The hull and deck were created using a vacuum infusion process from an optimized composite laminate with a PVC core, with structural reinforcements, also in carbon fiber, also used for the entire deck structure and the transom .
Much attention has been paid as a distinctive element of the boat and in general of the brand itself for the construction of the central console with attention to the smallest details with an anti-reflective and heat-resistant dashboard that features titanium fixing elements with ergonomically positioned components and instrumentation with double Garmin multifunction display.
In addition, the Tirranna 59 AMG Edition 2020 was powered by 6 outboard engines this time of 450 hp each, precisely it was equipped with 6 Mercury Racing 450Rs from the Verado range with 8 4.6-liter V-cylinders with a 2-liter volumetric compressor , 4 liters.
Each engine delivers a crankshaft power of up to 450 hp, with a total available power of 2,700 hp which allows the Tirranna 59 AMG Edition (briefly AMG Tirranna) to reach a maximum speed of almost 130 km / h equal to 80 mph . Thanks also to a set-up system able to control the inclination of each outboard during navigation and a Mercury Vesselview interface, which shows the six engines simultaneously on the screen.
They are undoubtedly exceptional performances for a boat of this size which can accommodate up to 26 people. The Cigarette Racing Team describes the new AMG Tirranna as “the perfect balance between a luxury yacht and a performance-oriented super console”.
The hull of AMG Tiranna double-step is equipped with a bow thruster bow thruster to make maneuvering easier in port, and the gyroscopic stabilizers “Seakeeper 9” to cancel almost 80%, according to its manufacturer l Roll effect elements these already present in the standard version 59 Tirranna further refined for this new version in a special edition.
To immediately create an aesthetic association, the exterior of the AMG Tiranna hull and the fabulous bodywork of the Mercedes-AMG 63 SUV are of the same metallic black color with similar accents in gold design, while the cabin below deck has been made with the same combination of interior colors of the Mercedes AMG G 63 SUV, spotted beige and dark blue.
