RENNTECH and Domani Motors are proud to present this gorgeous SL65 Black Series equipped with RENNTECHs Performance Package 1.

RENNTECH also outfitted the vehicle with a Transmission upgrade and 100% Locking Rear Differential. These modifications are essential when attempting to transfer ridiculous amounts of power. It’s amazing how the upgraded differential completely transforms the cars driving dynamics. The driver can now feel in command of the vehicle when pushing the Bi-turbo V12 to its limits.

RENNtech tunes the SL65 Black Series

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

RENNtech is making progress on one of this year’s most sought-after supercars, the Mercedes-Benz SL65 Black Series. Initial ECU programming results on the twin-turbo V12 were remarkable. And after further testing and development RENNtech massaged 630 HP / 765 LB-FT at the wheels on the in-house dyno. In the case of this particular dyno run that’s 67HP/69LB-FT over stock. Helping to plant that tire-liquifying power to the ground is a custom 100% locking limited-slip differential.

RENNtech will continue to pump up the SL65 Black Series and expects to have even more substantial numbers as R&D progresses. Stay tuned!

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.
