RENNtech wins GLK tuner build-off at SEMA

Muamer Hodzic December 3, 2008

After an intense, 45-day build and grueling 30 days of campaigning for votes from friends (like BenzInsider), family, and total strangers, Mercedes-Benz announced that RENNTECH has won the MBUSA GLK tuner build-off!

The competition wasn’t easy, with BLVD Customs’ strong GLK “Urban Whip” roadster and Brabus’ slick “Widestar” each swapping positions with RENNTECH for the lead throughout. At the end of the day, however, Mercedes acknowledged that RENNTECH’s sweeping program of upgrades – which included extensive engine mods, software development, aerodynamic bodywork, suspension and brake upgrades, as well as converting the GLK to hybrid drive – pushed RENNTECH’s GLK 350 Spec.R Pike’s Peak rally racer “over the edge”.

  1. It could have been their “sweeping program of upgrades” or it could have been because they received 3.9 million votes from a single IP Address during the last week.

  2. That is some serious accusation. Are there any indications that this happened or how do you know about this. Why were those votes counted? If true, it doesn’t seem to be just RENNtech’s fault then, the organizers are also to blame.
