In the American tuning studio, seriously charged the sports car of the German brand.

Recall, sports model Mercedes-AMG GT is offered in several modifications. All of them are equipped with four-liter V8 M178 bi-turbo motor in various embodiments of forcing: at the base GT it outputs 469 hp at GT C power increased to 550 horsepower, and a top oriented track races, GT R develops capacity 577 hp. Anyway, this is not enough, probably decided in Renntech and took up the car.

The result of the work of specialists at the studio was a range of upgrades, increasing the power of the GT R to 612-825 hp. The top package was named AMG GT R825 and, in addition to increasing the number of horsepower, significantly adds torque – up to 850 Nm. All this became possible due to the installation of larger turbochargers, software development, purge valves and high-flow air filter. Transmission and clutch, of course, were strengthened.

The increase in power is accompanied by several exterior upgrades. Renntech staffed the GT R with a unique aerodynamic package, including a front bumper with swirlers, side splitters and a special two-stage rear fender. The package also includes a set of lightweight forged wheels Vossen, shod in the rubber Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 ZP.

All these improvements will cost the client “a pretty penny”. Renntech does not name the cost of the upgrade package, but if the base price of Mercedes-AMG GT R is 157,000 dollars, then the tuned 825-strong sports car from Renntech will cost about 200,000 dollars

By the way, the sports car is sold well, for example, last year in Europe, 2,443 such cars were sold, whereas a year earlier 2 372 pieces. In the United States, these figures were 1,609 and 1,227 vehicles, respectively. So, it will not be difficult to find customers for the tuning program of the Renntech studio.

Recently, we talked about the charged Mercedes-AMG E 63 Estate, whose power in the process of tuning was increased to more than 700 hp.
