Our dirty hands tell the story. We work at the cutting edge of digital design, but speed still requires gas and oil. And elbow grease. An idea might look fast on the computer screen, but the truth is revealed on the water. The go-faster pros at Mercury Racing know the secrets of speed, how to shape metal and flow air and fuel in a way that keeps expanding the performance envelope. Fifty years of racing and winning, of spinning wrenches and analyzing data, of building marine power others could not even imagine. Our fingerprints are all over these engines.
