Developed in the Green Hell and redefined in the Sunshine State; introducing the RENNtech R3 Mercedes-AMG GT R.
AMG set new standards in the daily-driver luxury-supercar class with their second fully in-house developed vehicle. Based on the AMG GT, the R Version has been re-developed to feel at home on the world’s most demanding race tracks.
Mercedes-AMG equipped the AMG GT R with bigger turbochargers, now producing 577 HP and 516 LB-FT. Also included is a first-ever 9-mode Traction Control System that allows the driver to adjust the traction control on the fly, depending on driving conditions. For more aggressive cornering AMG added active rear-axle steering, which allows for either high-speed corner stability or a smaller turning radius, depending on the driving speed.
To accommodate the added performance upgrades, Mercedes-AMG refined the exterior and aerodynamics of the vehicle. The track width is increased thanks to 57mm wider fenders, aggressive active aerodynamics integrated in the front- and rear-bumper and the panamericana grille, inspired by the AMG GT3 race-car. The AMG Performance Exhaust gives an extra aggressive roar through the central exhaust outlet when racing through the Green Hell.[soliloquy slug=”renntech-amg-gt-r-orange-beast-1″]
RENNtech, determined to redefine these improvements, worked their usual magic and the AMG GT R evolved into to the ‘Orange-Beast’. RENNtech’s R3-Performance Package includes ECU Upgrade, BOV Adapters, High-Flow Air Filters and Stage II upgraded Turbochargers. To push the 4.0L V8 BiTurbo to new heights, RENNtech modified the OEM turbocharger core to fit a larger compressor, larger turbine wheel and equipped them with improved, more robust bearings. The R3 AMG GT R now produces 761 HP and 632 LB-FT, gains of up to +152HP and +91LB-FT. Launching from 0 to 60 mph in 3.0 seconds and passing the 1⁄4 mile in 10.7 seconds at an incredible 136mph, all on a non-prepped road surface with the OEM Michelin Cup Sport 2 tires.
All products have been tested and developed by RENNtech, the premier AMG specialist since 1989. R-Line Performance packages are available for all Mercedes-Benz models as well as other European brands.
