This year’s Art Basel Miami event saw the creation and unveiling of the RENNtech Mercedes SL65 V-12 by artist Laurence Gartel. The car is a vibrant depiction and inspiration of Miami’s colorful energy depicting a fusion between the reality of nature and the cybernetic fantasy of digital imagery.
The vehicle will be traveling across the country on display at many high profile events including the 2015 Grammy Awards held Febuary 8th in Los Angeles, CA.
Continue to follow it throughout the year and stay tuned for more events to be announced throughout the year.

Mercedes-Benz Vans is displaying a special DJ Van from RENNtech in the lobby of Cobo Hall during NAIAS press days, just outside of the Mercedes-Benz booth. Notable Detroit-based DJ Jenny LaFemme will be providing musical entertainment to those in the vicinity on January 12 and 13. The van features a fully-functional DJ setup and a raised roof with plenty of speakers to make its presence known.
The RENNtech DJ Van was one of four vans at SEMA in November 2014 at the Mercedes-Benz Vans “Mission: Metris” display. This gathering of concept vans was designed to be a first glimpse of the Mercedes-Benz Metris, which goes on sale in fall 2015 as both a passenger and commercial van. SEMA attendees were able to vote on their favorite concept via various social media channels. The RENNtech DJ Van was the clear winner of the Mission: Metris contest due to its striking design and overall audio/visual effects, and will be shown alongside the U.S. production versions of the Mercedes-Benz Metris at their premiere at NTEA in March.
Representatives from Mercedes-Benz Vans USA and RENNtech will be on site for product walkarounds and more detailed product information.

RENNtech is pleased to announce that after long term testing our stage 2 performance upgrades are ready for the M133 engine. Making 455 HP and 555 NM our stage 2 kit is the ultimate upgrade for Mercedes newest two liter turbocharged rocket.
Since August, RENNtech and RENNtech Engineering in Germany have been pushing the tuning envelope and have made significant gains in performance including turbo upgrades and the ability to remap the ECU. Months of real world Autobahn testing of our M133 stage 2 kit has resulted in full TUV Certification.
In addition to our stage 2 upgrade we currently offer a performance downpipe featuring a high flow, specially coated 200 cell catalytic converter. This converts exhaust gases better than anything on the market and unlike other downpipes will not set a check engine light during long term, high speed driving, even on US spec cars.
Future developments for the M133 include additional exhaust components and a unique carbon turbo heat shield. Our heat shield is crafted from the latest CMC carbon material which exhibits extremely low density, excellent thermal insulating properties and low thermal conductivity. This is a real upgrade and insulates the turbo charger rather than a stainless shield or similar material that actually conducts heat into the engine compartment.
