Mercedes AMG GT R by RENNtech Packs Enormous Power

Those owning the Mercedes AMG GT R in its latest edition and aren`t satisfied with the stock yet mind-blowing 585 horsepower (which is more than enough to achieve incredible sprint numbers) can always resort to in-depth modifications.

There is RENNtech tuning firm for instance, a Florida company that has been part of Mercedes-Benz since 1999, and which is mainly specialized in customizing AMG models both at the exterior as well as under the hood.

Back to our story, the owner of the gorgeous AMG GT R exposed in the media gallery below wanted more from the raw power and asked RENNtech for some help. And just like it was bound to happen, the technicians kept their promised and delivered the most powerful AMG GT R ever built.

To cope with the massive power, some exterior preparations had to be made. First off, the specialists from RENNtech have added some aero body parts like front bumper canards, extended rear diffuser, two-stage rear wing and side rocker panels.

Next, a new set of Vossen wheels were added. They measure 19 x 10 and 20 x 12 front and rear, respectively, and are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 ZP semi-slick tires, sized as well 285/30 ZR and 335/25 ZR 20.

Finally, they moved under the hood and added some new technical bits that raise the sports car`s power. They have upgraded the engine`s software, installing as well blow-off valves, new turbochargers, high-flow air filter and a downpipe with a 200-cell cat.

All these contribute to the car`s power increase. This means that now, the 4.0-liter Bi-Turbo variant is outputting 825 horsepower and staggering 850 Nm of torque. Giving the stock 3.6 seconds from standstill to 100 km/h, we except around 3.0 seconds from the same sprint. The top speed has not been messed around with, so this car reaches the same top speed of 310 km/h. You can find more details about the Mercedes AMG GT R by RENNtech in the media gallery below!
