So much for the Green Beast! No it has just turned orange, in the hands of the tuning experts Renntech! And it is not just the color that the car is bragging about, but also the power!
BOV adapters, high-flow air filters to reduce the drag coefficient and Stage II upgraded turbochargers. It may sound la a Physics and Technical class, two in one, and it actually is, since it brought the Mercedes-AMG GT R 761 horsepower and 857 Newton meters of torque, up from the standard 577 HP and 700 Nm. If there anything that can be called standard about the monster coming out of the “Green Hell” of Nurburgring.
Renntech promises to spark the newly powered GT R from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.0 seconds, faster by 0.5 seconds than the car built by AMG in Affalterbach. It also boasts a 10.7 seconds time for a quarter mile, with the car running on OEM Michelin Cup Sport 2 tires.
Renntech keeps the price details a secret for the moment, but a Mercedes-AMG GT R can be purchased for €165,410 (that is $157,000 in the US). It depends on the owners how much they decide to invest in the aftermarket upgrades.
