A Video Reminder Of The SLR’s Brutality

Produced from 2003-2009, the Mercedes SLR McLaren is a supercar with an impeccable pedigree. Made in England with a hand-built engine and a carbon fiber body, this car could accelerate to 60 mph in around 3.4 seconds from the almost 620 horsepower produced by its supercharged, 90-degree V8. The SLR has since been superseded by the SLS, but certainly not surpassed. And despite a projected run of only 3,500 units, the SLR spawned several variants. Among them was a roadster edition, the 722 editions and the Stirling Moss and McLaren special editions. These were produced in very limited numbers with prices topping more than a million dollars in many cases…. Continue Reading »


RENNTech SLR Shows Extreme Performance From Minimal Mods

Some people just have no respect for the Mercedes engineers who spend hundreds, if not thousands, of hours testing and tuning the carmaker’s products for the best performance. And that’s actually a good thing, because if there were no tuners like RENNtech who seek to obtain the ultimate performance from cars they lay their hands on, we wouldn’t be seeing this video. Billed as the world’s fastest Mercedes-powered Mercedes, this video shows a RENNtech-tuned Mercedes SLR McLaren doing a 10.31 in the quarter mile. With a trap speed of 136 mph, it’s pretty quick, considering that the mods done to it consisted only of bolt-ons. Combining a smaller supercharger pulley,… Continue Reading »


RENNtech CL65 Lays Claim To Fastest Mercedes Quarter-Miler

Publicizing performance numbers of your modified cars is part of the tuning game, as it entices would-be customers towards particular products or vehicles that capture the public’s attention. True to form, RENNtech has trumpeted its quarter-mile time of 10.27 seconds as an achievement to which it is claiming the title of being the world’s fastest Mercedes. This quarter-mile time, together with a trap speed of 137.46 mph was hit on April 1 of this year at the Palm Beach International Raceway. The CL65’s previous time of 10.51 seconds had been bested by a nitrous-powered C63 and so RENNtech set about to rectify this situation by having its engineers find the… Continue Reading »


RENNtech Brings CLK 63 Black Series Carbon Upgrades to Market

RENNtech, one of the premiere Mercedes-Benz tuners, had been providing some CLK 63 Black Series one-off carbon fiber aerodynamic add-ons to a select group of people such as Indy Racing driver Tony Kanaan.

The Domani Motors-Renntech SL65 AMG Black Series

Ready for a little bit of madness? Some time back, the guys down at Domani Motors were able to get their hands on an SL65 AMG Black Series, and put it in their showroom.

They perked up the car and made it even more other-worldly than it already is. They did this with the help of their pals down at Renntech, whose Performance Package 1 was just what the doctor ordered to make their dreams come true. For those of you… Continue Reading »
