The Cigarette Racing GT Vision concept is no ordinary boat. For starters, this high-speed vessel is a one-off and is being sold for $1.5 million. Also, it was inspired by a Mercedes-Benz concept car that exists only in the game 'Gran Turismo 6.' The car in question, the Vision Gran Turismo, can only be driven in the virtual world, although a non-operational physical version did make an appearance at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The Cigarette Racing GT Vision concept is a bit faster than its virtual counterpart, boasting two 9.0-liter V8 engines good for 1,650 horsepower. Its beefy engines help push the boat to a top speed of 140 mph, a respectable number both on land and water. The boat's interior is as luxurious as they come, and is covered in carbon fiber and Alcantara and filled with the latest technology.
