In this edition of RENNtech Performance Blog, we will dive into the performance development and extraordinary achievements of the RT engineering team and the car that broke the RENNtech Dyno record.In late January we received a call from a customer who acquired a low mile AMG GT63S Edition One. The customer wanted to know about our GT63 (S) and M177 Engine development, and if it was possible to turn his Edition One into a 9 Second ¼ mile car. This had to be achieved without removing any seats or adding nitrous, and the car needed to run on factory Michelin Pilot Sport 4S street tires, and 93 Octane fuel for daily comfort.
Once the project was outlined and approved, development began at RENNtech headquarters in Stuart, Florida. During several weeks of development and testing in various stages, the results showed promise. The increased flow of air proved to be crucial for the M177 to deliver an astounding 1196 crank HP, 1006.96 WHP, and 935lb of TQ running on 100 Oct Gas.
This is the most powerful RENNtech AMG GT63S in the world, and set a new RENNtech power record by being the first vehicle to break the 1000 WHP mark measured on RENNtech’s Dyno. The Dyno has seen some of the fiercest Mercedes-AMG developments over the past decade, but none had spun the 4-wheel Dyno with this much power.
During road testing, under challenging conditions of a hot Florida day with high humidity and
density altitude, the Edition One broke the 10 Second ¼ mile barrier, clocking
a quarter-mile time of 9.99 seconds on street tires and no prep. This record setting performance makes it one of the fastest 4-door vehicles ever, and the fastest AMG
GT63S Edition One (X290) built by RENNtech.
“These cars are quite amazing. The amount of power we have been able to unlock from the M177 engine is incredible, and this development proved how strong the engine can be. With the increased airflow from our carbon fiber airboxes and the right tuning, we were able to gain massive power without compromising usability. Combined with the X290 -chassis, what we have developed is a 1000 WHP Mercedes-AMG that is incredibly fast and perfectly suited for daily driving”. Said Hartmut Feyhl, President, RENNtech.
With its unrivaled capabilities the Edition One is a testament to the expertise and craftsmanship of RENNtech, as well to the passion of the owner who chose to pursue performance without compromise and chose RENNtech for the development.
“My objective was to make a unique one- of-a-kind super car that no one else in the world has, and RENNtech was able to deliver. It’s a special car that I can occasionally take out for a night on the town, to a car show, or an occasional spirited drive.” said the Owner @ed1t1ongt63s
“What sets RENNtech apart from other tuners is their commitment to transparency & verifiability. They publish information that can be substantiated with Dyno charts and videos, ensuring that every claim is backed by tangible evidence. They also go beyond raw power, prioritizing the performance, safety and reliability of their tuned vehicles on the road”. the Owner continued.
While many aspire to redefine automotive boundaries, this rare RENNtech built AMG GT63 Edition One managed to surpass all expectations, with unrivaled performance steeped in Mercedes-Benz AMG luxury and reliability. With its awe-inspiring performance, this unique AMG GT63 S Edition One stands above the rest and has etched its name to a long list of legendary RENNtechbuilds.
*Due to the high degree of development and tuning, power levels that exceed 1000 WHP are only available through RENNtech headquarters in Stuart, FL.
