RENNTECH RAIDS GLK PRESS LAUNCH

Friday, December 5th, 2008






Mercedes had a bit of a surprise in store for the press guys who made it out to the GLK press launch in Santa Barbara, California: Hartmut Feyhl and his (award winning!) RENNTECH GLK 350 Spec.R Hybrid rally racer was there waiting for them! Feyhl cranked up the GLK and gave the throttle a few blips to show off the incredible sound the RENNTECH machine makes before leaving the Canary hotel to take part in the Santa Barbara press drive.

All of this, of course, was part of RENNTECH’s prize for winning the Mercedes-Benz 2008 SEMA Tuner Build-Off competition, which included a 45-day build and 30 days of campaigning for votes from friends, fans, and family.




Thanks again, to everyone who voted!

RENNTECH WINS!

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2008




After an intense, 45-day build and grueling 30 days of campaigning for votes from friends, family, and total strangers, Mercedes-Benz announced that RENNTECH has won the MBUSA GLK tuner build-off!

The competition wasn’t easy, with BLVD Customs’ strong GLK “Urban Whip” roadster and Brabus’ slick “Widestar” each swapping positions with RENNTECH for the lead throughout. At the end of the day, however, Mercedes acknowledged that RENNTECH’s sweeping program of upgrades – which included extensive engine mods, software development, aerodynamic bodywork, suspension and brake upgrades, as well as converting the GLK to hybrid drive – pushed RENNTECH’s GLK 350 Spec.R Rally Racer “over the edge”.

RENNTECH would like to thank all our friends and sponsors (listed, below), this build would not have been possible without you.

Thanks for all your support!

The media reaction to RENNTECH’s GLK hybrid rally-racer has been overwhelmingly positive, and these photos from WorldCarFans (taken at last week’s Mercedes-Benz media reveal at the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas) capture the sense of energy and excitement that permeated the event.

Mercedes is letting the public decide which of the 4 tuners did a better job on their assigned theme – you can text GLK73 to 48457 to vote for RENNTECH.
