Ducati and Cigarette Racing unveiled today in Miami the new Cigarette Racing 42X Ducati Edition powerboat. The event was part of the Miami International Boat Show and it officially marked a collaboration between the motorcycle company and the boat builder.
The new speed boat features Ducatti's colors with a white base and red stripes. The 42 feet long racer can plow through waves at speeds that exceed 120 mph (200 km/h), thanks two Mercury Racing Engines that deliver a mind numbing 2,200-horses, or the HP equivalent from seven Focus RS.
The color scheme continues with the interior that gets white leather seats with red accents. As far as features go, JL Audio has designed the stereo system especially for this model and standard options include color GPS or electric bolsters. And if your girlfriend loves to make the best out of open sea cruising, the 42X can be ordered with a swimming platform.
"We are delighted to team up with Cigarette Racing Team, the Ducati of the sea. This new 42X Ducati Edition brings together the two legends of performance, design and racing heritage. I am very excited to announce this exciting boat, and feel we have found an excellent new partner in the team at Cigarette Racing." Said Gabriele Del Torchio, President and CEO of Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A.
