For years, duPont REGISTRY has worked with aftermarket companies including some of the oldest and most well-known ones. However, we are also a platform for new aftermarket brands to introduce themselves with. Because of this, we have worked with an incredible range of companies, each with their own specialties and expertise.
To give you an idea of these aftermarket companies, we’ve put together a few that are currently found either in the pages of the duPont REGISTRY magazine or on our digital platforms. Scroll down below to see what we’re talking about and click on their respective buttons to learn more about each brand.
Listed as the “Best Brand 2013” by Auto Motor und Sport, making this is the eighth time the company has taken the title. Founded in 1977, BRABUS began by building high-luxury, high-performance cars. The founders have been installing audio multimedia systems since 1982 and have more than mastered it since. They can modify and enhance just about any vehicle offered, or you can just buy a vehicle straight from their shop.
The company tests their work all throughout the year to ensure anything with the BRABUS badge is nothing but the best. Selecting your vehicle from a tuner has never been more engaging, as the company recently created a Car Configurator to allow you to create and modify your own car online. Choose anything, from the sound of your vehicle to the body kit and wheels, even the hand-tailored interior, before you buy, then get your price. It’s outstanding.
Hennessey Performance is a company that needs no introduction. They take your car, tune it their way and send it back to you with more power than you ever thought possible. They’ve recently begun distributing cars of their own, as well as shipping some to dealerships, such as Hendrick Cadillac in Kansas City, Miss. Hennessey is best recognized for their very own creation, a Veyron killing Venom GT, which currently holds the world record for the quickest 0-300km/h time.
For a moment, that Venom was the fastest production car in the world, and, we believe, not far from taking that title once more. The Hennessey team is among the best of the best and offers nothing but the finest and quickest available today. Go to their site to buy your own vehicle and see some videos of them in action.
Founded in 1989 by Hartmut Feyhl, RENNtech celebrates its 30th year in the business of shattering performance records. Feyhl is an essential part of the past, present and future of Mercedes-Benz and AMG performance development, and RENNtech continues setting the pace on the streets and the track.
Born with a passion for motor racing and a mind for engineering, Feyhl’s career began in Affalterbach, Germany, landing his first summer job with Hans-Werner Aufrecht and Erhard Melcher at AMG in 1976, at their original facility, the old Mill in Burgstall.
At AMG Feyhl had a vital role in both the development and launch of the W124 AMG E300 6.0 “Hammer”. When AMG entered the North American market in 1986, Feyhl was appointed Technical Director and placed in charge of car development in North America.
In 1989, Feyhl made the decision to go out on his own. He incorporated RENNtech, and set up shop in Delray Beach, Florida, with the blessing of Hans-Werner Aufrecht in order to serve the existing AMG VIP customers in the U.S.
