The American tuner RENNtech is best known for giving Mercedes vehicles a significant power boost. RENNtech fitted their power boost kit on the already potent Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series for their most recent project. As an upgrade provider for the CLK, SL 65, and SLS before moving on to the fastest and most potent AMG GT, RENNtech is no stranger to the Black Series.
It appears that RENNtech is in competition with the AMG division because in 2018, they also provided a tuning package for the AMG GT R, making it the quickest Mercedes at the Nurburgring at the time. In 2020, the stock AMG GT Black Series increased the ante with a lap time of 6:43:616.
The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series is a highly improved and optimized vehicle that comes with motorsport-derived aero components all around the bodywork, but RENNtech thinks there is still room to increase the power even further.
Machine Black wheels with distinct orange highlights were installed by the tuner. Additional improvements include a rollbar that matches the color of the vehicle, four-point seatbelts from Sabelt or Schroth, and a fire extinguisher, features that are identical to those included as factory options on the EU-spec model.
Under the hood, the biggest changes take place. The tuner replaced a pair of turbochargers, stainless steel downpipes, blow-off valves, and BMC air filters and updated the ECU software.
The twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 engine from AMG has a standard output of 720 horsepower and 800 Nm of torque. This might be improved by RENNtech to an astonishing 1,051 horsepower and 1,127 Nm of torque. This is the strongest Black Series in the world, according to RENNtech.
A seven-speed dual-clutch transmission that features improved algorithms for quicker shifting transmits power to the rear axle. To handle the enormous torque, we must additionally mention an enhanced performance clutch.
The AMG GT Black Series accelerates from 0-97 km/h in 3.0 seconds when equipped with the R3 upgrade, whilst the stock vehicle requires 3.2 seconds for the 0-100 km/h race. Additionally, the top speed was raised from the regular 325 km/h to 352 km/h.
The Mercedes-AMG GT Black Series R3 from RENNtech is now offered in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. You should get in touch with the tuner to ask about pricing since there is now no announcement about it.
