RENNTECH clocked the fastest quarter mile pass ever made by a CL65! The vehicle was recently upgraded with newly developed RENNTECH modifications which created substantial power and torque improvements. A World Record quarter mile pass of 10.62 seconds @ 133.7 mph was clocked on the cars final pass of the night.
The 700 HP RennTech CLS63 AMG - /TUNED
Hartmut Feyhl left AMG after 15 years to start his own tuning company,
RennTech, which is now one of the most respected AMG tuners in the world.
His products range from simple software upgrades to full racing builds
based on AMG street cars. We take his new, 700 horsepower CLS63 for a spin
and establish a new benchmark for luxury sedans: must be able to do
burnouts while moving at highway speeds.
Renntech SL65 vs Ferrari 458
The Ferrari is stock. My SL65 has the stage three Renntech package.
That's the ECU, TCU, wheels, tires, suspension module, Exhaust, toe links, Intercooler pump upgrade, and carbon
fiber airbox upgrade. It's making 730hp and 930tq.
We had two races. The first one was from 40-130 and the Ferrari didn't
hear my three honks. He took of a bit late letting me get out front early
in the race, and that's where I stayed. During the second race, I got all
the way into the throttle a little too early resulting in massive tire spin
to about 70mph. By then, the Ferrari was way out front, and all I could do
was sit back and watch.
Overall, in a straight line, we both decided that this was a pretty even
match up. In my opinion, the slight nod would probably go to the 458.
BTW, if you haven't smelled the interior of a 458 yet, it by itself is
worth the price of admission!
RENNTECH C63 AMG PASSENGER POINT OF VIEW, INSANE SOUND.
This is a raw video of my RENNtech C63.
Once in a while I take her out for a spirited drive (respecting other
drivers and pedestrians of course) to a very low traffic road.
Even though the redesigned C63 (2014?) is said to come with more HP (twin
turbo, 528HP, unofficially) from the
factory, the sound of the naturally aspired 6.2L hand made AMG engine is
just insane. In my humble opinion, the pure, raw muscle of this car will
turn it into a classic one day.
Only time will tell.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
2013 SRT Viper vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black Series! - Head 2 Head Ep. 36
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend's Jonny Lieberman pits two
members of the "more than 600 horsepower club" against
each other - the 2013 SRT Viper & the 2014 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Black
Series. It's a three-bout heavyweight match that begins with real world
canyon carving, moves on to an all-out quarter mile drag race, and then
finishes with blistering hot laps around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca with hot
shoe Randy Pobst.
Despite a huge gap in price, both of these long-nosed, front-engine, RWD,
two-seat brawlers represent significant revisions of their wild
predecessors. Will good old fashion American muscle beat out German
Engineering? Join us as we find out.
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
