RENNTECH has just put the finishing touches on a new exhaust system for the Mercedes-Benz CLK63 AMG Cabrio. The single-out exhaust for this car (and the previous CLK55 AMG) was never a fan-favorite, but with RENNTECH’s new sound-pipe and deep, muscle-car growl, it soon will be!

For the Mercedes /AMG-enthusiast who has it all, RENNTECH has announced a new line of limited-slip differentials just in time for the holidays.

Founded by ex-AMG technical director Hartmut Feyhl, RENNTECH has built a solid reputation by delivering useable, real-world performance since 1989, and these new diffs (a RENNTECH-only component produced by OS Giken) continue RENNTECH’s nearly 20-year tradition of tuning excellence.

“This new differential is very unique, and different from anything that has been available up to now,” explains Feyhl. “First, the OS Giken diff. is a true 100% locking differential, and because it uses significantly more friction surfaces internally, there is a very smooth transmission of power to the inside wheel at the track with virtually no noise and chatter on the road.”

RENNTECH’s new rear differentials are based on OS Giken’s line of Super-Lock LSD, which functions as a traditional open diff. in low and normal-load situations, transforming smoothly into a 100% fully locking diff. as loads rise. Hartmut raves about the new unit, calling it “the smoothest and quietest limited-slip I have ever driven – very much like factory. This diff. makes my AMG feel much more sportscar-like and responsive.”

Prices range from $4995 for V8 AMG models to $7995 for SLR and tuned 65 series AMGs.

The new season BBC’s hit show TopGear is now in full swing – and this video of the 500 hp Mercedes /AMG CLK63 Black Series is just one more example of why this should be everyone’s favorite show.

All these crazy Brit antics are fun, sure – but still, considering RENNTECH recently announced a comprehensive tuning package that boosted hp by 50 (and torque by 45-60 lb-ft between 2400 and 5000 rpm) you might have to watch the above in FFWD to get an idea of what we’re doing in Florida.

Enjoy the clip!
