Time to expand the trophy case.
It all started on April 22nd, 2011 when the RENNtech SLR set a world record for being the fastest Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR at Palm Beach International Raceway with a 10.439-second at 133.04 mph quarter mile run. Then, in May, the Florida-based tuner broke their previous speed record with a 10.29-second at 134 mph time, but it still wasn’t enough…
RENNtech started off 2012 with a bang, as they broke the nine-second barrier with their Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR. Named the LP4 SLR 777, the RENNtech SLR features a full Mansory Renovatio exterior body upgrade, and a number of in-house performance modifications to make it the fastest SLR in the world. The LP4 SLR 777 was also featured in the December 2011 issue of the Dupont Registry and made an appearance at the 2011 SEMA Show.
After basking in the limelight, the RENNtech SLR took to Palm Beach International Raceway once again to shatter records. The LP4 SLR 777 was able to achieve an astonishing 9.76-second at 140.8 mph run, making it both the fastest SLR in the world and the first Mercedes-Benz powered Mercedes model to run in the nine-second range for the quarter mile.
