RENNTECH AT SEMA
RENNTECH's crew just got back from last week's SEMA show and a successful reveal of the new RENNTECH Mercedes GLK 350 Spec.R Hybrid rally-racer!
For those of you not "in the know", Mercedes-Benz selected RENNTECH to build a rally version of their new GLK 350 light SUV, and told us to find inspiration in the Pikes' Peak International Hillclimb Unlimited-class racers. With that directive in mind, RENNTECH delivered the "rally-red" hybrid racer you see above (posing with RENNTECH president, Hartmut Feyhl, and swimsuit model Andrea).
Powered by a 350 hp, RENNTECH-tuned version the 3.5 liter V6 found in Mercedes' Euro-market SLK sport, RENNTECH's hybrid rally-racer project is meant to show that motorsports can be made environmentally responsible without sacrificing "the show".
More specs and info. coming soon ...
RENNTECH was chosen by Mercedes-Benz to participate in a GLK "tuner build-off" to let the public decide which of the four tuners best fulfilled the requirements of their assigned "theme". CLICK HERE for more photos of RENNTECH's GLK, and visit MBUSA.com/GLK to vote for RENNTECH's GLK.
