Mercedes-Benz Monaco Speedboat Commercial

No manufacturers manages to convey its stellar performance and luxury components to its customers quite like Mercedes-Benz. One of the latest ways that the German luxury car provider once again showed it is at the top of the performance luxury market was a new Mercedes-Benz speedboat commercial that was shot in Monaco with Mercedes-Benz Formula 1 drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton. This time they weren’t in their usual setting, and were instead piloting two of the coolest speedboats that Mercedes-Benz has ever designed!

High Performance or Luxury? Why Not Both?

The main message that Mercedes-Benz wanted to convey with its Monaco speedboat commercial was that, with Mercedes and AMG, drivers can have both high performance and luxury in their vehicle. As you can see in the video, the Cigarette Racing speedboat that Lewis Hamilton is piloting is built for speed, but also provides a very relaxing setting for the driver to be in. Meanwhile, the Mercedes-Benz Style luxury motor yacht that Nico Rosberg is in control of reflects more luxury, but still has the power to keep pace with a racing speedboat!

What Vehicles are in the Commercial?

As you can see towards the end, there are two vehicles that the drivers are standing next to as the video wraps up. Lewis Hamilton is standing next to his Mercedes AMG Petronas Formula 1 car, while Lewis Hamilton is standing beside the new S-Class Cabriolet.

Why Monaco?

Well, for those of you who are not race fans, this past weekend was actually the Monaco Grand Prix which is obviously held in Monaco. Lewis Hamilton wound up winning the race, but in the days leading up to it, he and Nico Rosberg were able to get together and shoot this Mercedes-Benz Monaco speedboat commercial.

Can You Buy Either of the Speedboats?

Actually, yes! The Arrow460-Granturismo that Nico Rosberg was piloting will be available for purchase in Europe. However, it will come at a lofty price. It is listed for 2.5 million euros, which would be about $2.8 million here in the U.S. Meanwhile, the speedboat that Lewis Hamilton was piloting was still simply a concept model.
