Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

RENNtech powered SLR once again shattered its own 1/4 mile record of 10.29 @ 134 mph (215 kmh), with an astonishing 9.76 @ 140.8 mph (226 kmh) run!

The SLR (L4P SLR 777) features full compliment of RENNtech performance and exterior modifications in addition to a full Mansory Renovatio body kit; making this SLR not only beautiful, but deadly quick. This vehicle was also the December 2011 cover vehicle of Dupont Registry and part of this years SEMA show.

The 9.76 1/4 mile time officially makes the SLR 777 not only the fastest Mercedes Benz on the planet, but also is the World’s First Mercedes Benz powered Mercedes to run 9s in the quarter mile.

Here is a video of the run:

Now onto breaking into the 8′s…….

World Fastest Mercedes Record Regained By RENNtech

Thursday, April 7th, 2011

On April 1, 2011, RENNtech regained their long standing title of worlds fastest Mercedes Benz. Our RENNtech modified CL65, which held the long standing previous record once again reigned supreme by shattering its previous best quarter mile time with an unprecedented  run of 10.27 @ 137.46 mph at Palm Beach International Raceway. This official time makes our CL 65 the fastest Mercedes on the planet.

The previous record of 10.51 @ 135.11 mph, also held by RENNtech’s CL65, was broken just last week by a C63 running 125 shot of nitrous which logged a 10.41 @ 135.27 mph run on 3/25/2011. Not one to be bested and looking to regain the title; RENNtech went back to work in search of even more from the CL 65 with further improvements and without the use of nitrous. Modifications to the CL 65 included an even more aggressive race only tune, enhanced drive line modifications such as upgraded transmission internals and a prototype torque converter and additional light weighted vehicle components. These are in addition to the already installed RENNtech modified ECU/TCU, carbon airbox, limited slip differential, high flow exhaust, drag radials, modified heat exchanger and intercooler pump.


  • 60′ – 1.626
  • 330′ – 4.412
  • 1/8 – 6.682
  • MPH – 108.99
  • 1000 – 8.629
  • 1/4 – 10.274
  • MPH – 137.46

RENNtech looks to continue shattering our own records and will be further modifying the CL in search even more performance in pursuit of the first 9 second Mercedes Benz. Congratulations to Steve C., car owner and driver, on this incredible achievement.
