9.76 @ 140.8 mph! First Mercedes to break into the 9′s! Worlds fastest Mercedes!

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…….

I was browsing some the RENNTECH customer cars that have posted timeslips on Dragtimes (for those of you not “in the know”, Dragtimes is THE resource for real-world performance numbers, with visitors from all over the world posting timeslips, videos, and photos of real cars, putting down real numbers) and stumbled across this fantastic picture of a RENNTECH-tuned S65 (w220) AMG Mercedes barreling through the 1/4 mile speed traps at almost 130 mph!

While we’ve been discussing this run for some time (the big S’ timeslip shows that this epic run took place in late 2006) this is the first time I’ve seen this photo.
