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.

Join RENNtech @ Supercar Week

For an even schedule visit



Supporters Include Sebring International Raceway, RENNtech, McLaren and the Ferretti Group

Jan. 8, 2014 / West Palm Beach, FL – Supercar Week presented by Palm Beach International Raceway – already in progress and continuing until the Supercar Supershow on Sunday at the downtown waterfront — is already the largest and most influential collection of automotive happenings in South Florida, and the scope of the event continues to grow with the addition of new sponsors and unique participants. 

The legendary Sebring International Raceway, which will host America’s oldest and most prestigious sports car endurance race — the 62nd Annual Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by “Fresh from Florida” March 12-15, 2014 — has joined the ranks of event sponsors and will have a display during the SuperCar SuperShow Grand Finale event on the West Palm Beach waterfront (Sunday, January 12) featuring the Corvette C7 Stingray pace car that will lead the field for the start of legendary endurance race.

“We are pleased to be associated with SuperCar Week,” stated Sebring President and General manager Tres Stephenson. “This event is an auto enthusiast’s paradise and we welcome the opportunity to be a supporting sponsor.”

Established in 1989 by Harmut Feyhl, RENNtech is currently celebrating its 25th anniversary as the foremost authority on high-performance products for virtually all Mercedes-Benz models.  The company has broadened its expertise to include a broad spectrum of luxury automobile performance tuning – including Porsche, VW, Audi and Bentley, and with this growth, Lake Park-based RENNtech has increased its annual involvement with Supercar Week with an expanded display of high-performance luxury cars.

“As a high-performance company doing business locally, nationally and internationally, Supercar Week is a major part of our marketing and public relations effort,” says Feyhl.  “The high-performance community is a close-knit and I’m amazed every year by the business we generate in unlikely places, from Europe to Utah, as a result of our participation in Supercar Week.”

The Ferretti Group is a world leader in designing, building and marketing luxury motoryachts,  with a unique portfolio of some of the most exclusive and prestigious brands in the world including: Ferretti, Pershing, Itama, Bertram, Riva, Mochi Craft, and CRN.  With a newly-opened boutique showroom at 125 Worth Avenue housing a $1 million Aquariva Super, Ferretti will be exhibiting two upscale yachts, a 54-ft. Mochi Craft and a 64-ft. Pershing, at the downtown docks on Flagler Drive during Supercar Sunday, Jan. 12.

“Supercar Week is a good fit for us because we share the same clientele; car guys are often also boat guys,” says sales executive Scott Weiland.  “This is an experiment for us, but it’s no secret that devotees of high performance exotic sports cars often have a high-performance motor yacht moored somewhere nearby.  And if someone is interested in the aquatic equivalent of a Lamborghini or Ferrari, our Worth Avenue showroom is just a few minutes from the waterfront action on Sunday’s Supercar Supershow.”

The Supercar Supershow, the world’s largest outdoor display of exotic and high-performance cars, will feature no less than three McLaren MP4-12Cs, thanks to the participation of Tampa Bay-area dealer the Dimmit Group, which also sells Aston Martin, Bentley, Cadillac, Land Rover, Roll-Royce and Volvo vehicles.  The 12C is an ultra-high performance sports car designed and manufactured by McLaren Automotive, the street car division of the famed Formula One team. 

The MP4-12C features a carbon fiber composite chassis, and is powered by a mid-mounted twin-turbocharged V-8 engine producing 616 horsepower.  The car will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 207 miles per hour.

These are the kind of performance numbers you would typically see from a race car, and Supercar Sunday will have plenty of those, including several cars from Riviera Beach-based Orbit Racing.  Specializing in all-things Porsche, from maintenance and performance upgrades to street-legal cars, Orbit is also runs a top team of Porsche factory GT racing cars and won the pole for their class in the 2012 24 Hours of Daytona.

Another race team/street car combination is Pettit Racing and RevOmax lubricants, who will team up to auction off a customized, twin-turbo Mazda RX-7 built by Petit Racing, with part of the profits going to the late Paul Walker’s “Reach Out Worldwide” foundation.  The car is a street legal race car with custom bodywork, suspension and interior and performance modifications that give it a top speed of 170 mph.

RevOmax USA is a new, green lubricants company born from a passion for racing and improving things down to the smallest details. Founded by Excellent Performance Inc. and Ambertech Global, RevOmax USA is strategically positioned to become a leader in the automotive, marine, racing & powersports industries by specializing in environmentally friendly biolubricant technologies.

Over the past 25 years, Pettit Racing has become the premier source for quality parts and accessories for Mazda RX7, RX8 and most rotary powered vehicles.  Pettit Racing has dealer locations worldwide with offices & facilities in the US & UK.  The main U.S. facility is located in Palm Beach and houses the R&D, new product development, and a complete race car fabrication shop.

“I’m delighted, but not totally surprised by the growth we’re experiencing this year,” says Neil London, President and Executive Producer of Supercar Week, Inc. and Managing Director of ICTV1 Networks.  “This is one of the most high-profile and influential automotive enthusiast events in South Florida and word is getting around that we present a great marketing and promotional platform for a wide variety of companies, not just in the automotive industry, but also for luxury, style and art.  And our sponsors, participants and fans are not just local, but come from around the country and around the world, giving us all the elements we need to continue expanding and become a major automotive destination event.”

Held annually January 4 – 12 at various locations around Palm Beach County, Supercar Week presented by PBIR includes private VIP and public parties, opening day of the Polo Season at the International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington, a Track Day event at Palm Beach International Raceway, Supercar at The Gardens in Palm Beach Gardens, Media Day, Supercar at The Norton Museum of Art, Supercar Auction America, an art auction of significant exotics, classics and specialty vehicles and an art exhibition, this year entitled “The History of Formula 1,” and the grand finale Supercar SuperShow, held Sunday January 12th on the West Palm Beach Waterfront.

More than 50,000 people and 600 cars are expected for the 2014 Supercar Week presented by PBIR and Sunday’s Supercar Supershow, including supercars, race cars, classics, muscle cars, high performance sports cars, electric and ‘green’ cars and art cars.
