American Muscle 3 is twice the impresstion. (other then those 1350 twin turbos that runs on 93 octain!

The actual boat between the MTI and the Ciggie the Ciggie looks WAY better. But the paint and such is a little better with Gino's. Cigarette does do an incredible job at fit and finish and coming up with new ideas. The 1350's look great and the rigging job is very nice as well. It will be cool to see how it runs. The 46 is a great running boat but I think that is too fast unless in perferct water, it will chine walk with any water i think. Well see....

Im guessing that those motors were developed for Merc by AMG (Mercedes). They look very european, and are all metric.

That is my thought too. Seems logical anyway. I think others here agree too.

Not very impressive to say the least....Gino's boat on the other hand is VERY impressive in every aspect!
