I was hoping for more. Agree 100% on Gino's MTI being much more true to the theme.
It will be interesting to hear how the Cig runs with the 1350's.

I think the MTI is a cool concept, but when it comes to design it is overloaded. Same thing with the Ferrari MTI. It is a bit tasteless I would say. The cigg looks sweet in its simplicity.... less is more!!

Without authorization from MB or AMG which means it is one of the priciest knock-offs out there.

I'm sorry, the MTI is in a completely different class from the cigarette. I like the concept and I'm sure the pictures don't do it justice.

I'm a little disappointed. The car upstages the boat!

Schweeng hit the nail on the head.. The PR was awesome though. Looked carefully at the interior today, "meh" was the only comment that came to mimd..

Maybe AMG is helping Merc with the new Turbo Motors? Other than that it's no where near as impressive as the Mercedes "MTI" which has the MB theme through out.
