Actually, it’s not “before” but “now”. The car in the photos is a “restomod”: a classic model from the past, but restored and updated according to the realities of today. The basis was the Mercedes S-class W140, or rather its version Mercedes 600SEL of 1992. RENNtech specialists have carefully worked on it. And what did they get in the end?
We got a new car even with its own name – RENNtech S76R. The designation hints at the size of the engine: a colossal 7.6-liter V12, based on the famous 6-liter engine of the “six hundredth”. They also added an original exhaust system and engine control unit settings – in the end, it gave 615 “horses” of power and 952 Nm of torque which is transmitted to the rear wheels through a 5-speed “automatic” and OS Giken differential.
Such “physical training” is enough to accelerate from 0-100 km/h within 5 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 250 km/h. But even at high speeds, everything is under control, thanks to modern Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires and powerful brakes from AMG.
The interior has also been modified, but it is maintained entirely in the style of the era. Genuine leather and Alcantara, carbon inserts, red stripes on the seats. In the back, there is a soft sofa with the possibility of adjusting the position of the seats. That is: the car was created for both the driver and the passenger at the same time.
Currently, with the RENNtech S76R super sedan, the company demonstrates its capabilities in restoring and tuning classic Mercedes cars. The cost of this specific copy is unknown – however, considering the depth of the changes, you should count on very solid number. I wonder if there are Mercedes S-class W140 fans in Ukraine who would agree to pay RENNtech to create such a masterpiece on wheels. What do you think?
