It seems like every time AMG boss Volker Mornhinweg announces that “the horsepower war is over” RENNTECH comes out with a press release releasing an new horsepower upgrade for AMG vehicles.
“Last year, it was a coincidence that we were releasing a new, 695 hp performance package for the 65 series AMG cars at around the same time. We sent out a press release that said ‘HP War Not Over’,” said Hartmut Feyhl, president of RENNTECH. “This year it is the same timing again, and we have something much more extreme to announce for our 20th Anniversary.”
This time around RENNTECH will introduce a new performance package for the McLaren 722 that will offer horsepower upgrades of up to 777-hp with a top speed reaching over 210 mph. Known as the RENNTECH 777, the new car will use the advanced carbon fiber chassis of the SLR McLaren with some aerodynamical upgrades including a huge wing, splitters and side skirts.
RENNTECH will only make 20 units of the RENNTECH 777 to celebrate the company’s 20th anniversary.
