Oh right, because it goes 100 mph+. I was down in North Miami at Lip-Ship Performance yesterday testing the Cigarette 39 Top Gun Unlimited for an upcoming story and heavens to Betsy does that thing have some pop. Twin 700-hp super-charged Mercury's had us cranking by A-Rod's house in South Beach at just over the triple-digit mark. So I crossed that one off the bucket list successfully. And by successfully, I mean without actually kicking the bucket while doing it. 


The only downside is now I have windburn so bad it looks like I'm wearing a mask of my own face. My fiancé summed it up succinctly when I walked in the door last night: "Whoa. Your face looks weird."
