Mercedes and Cigarette Racing have released the first teaser image of the upcoming SD GT3. Set to debut at the Miami International Boat Show on February 11th, the one-off model draws inspiration from the Mercedes-AMG GT3 race car. The companies are keeping details under wraps but the 41 foot long boat will apparently feature a silver exterior with contrasting yellow accents. The teaser image also suggests we can expect a relatively small cockpit which is covered by a short roof.

Mercedes and Cigarette Racing have released the first teaser image of the upcoming SD GT3.

Set to debut at the Miami International Boat Show on February 11th, the one-off model draws inspiration from the Mercedes-AMG GT3 race car.  The companies are keeping details under wraps but the 41 foot long boat will apparently feature a silver exterior with contrasting yellow accents.  The teaser image also suggests we can expect a relatively small cockpit which is covered by a short roof.

While little is known about the boat, the Mercedes-AMG GT3 was unveiled last year and it features an aggressive carbon fiber body kit that includes modified bumpers, ventilated front fenders, and revised side skirts.  The race car has also been equipped with a ventilated hood, carbon fiber flics, a rear diffuser, and a massive rear wing.

Since the model was designed to meet FIA GT3 specifications, it has a purpose-built interior with a carbon fiber racing seat and a steel roll cage.  Drivers will also find a digital instrument cluster, revised switchgear, and a steering wheel designed specifically for racing.

Power is provided by a 6.3-liter V8 engine which is connected to a six-speed sequential racing transmission.
