New G600

Post#1 » Sun Jun 07, 2009 7:46 am

To commemorate 30 years of the G and 20 years of Renntech tuning of Mercedes Cars, they built several special offerings. One was the awesome GLK that ran and will run again at Pikes Peak...but now they have the G600

I see they already have the Dubai plates drawn into the samples!

I don't know but it seems to me the G's get better as the number goes down.

The fellow who was the head mechanic for Europa in the 90s had the engine in my 230GE built by Renntech while he owned it. I have all the receipts. It was expensive but it's quite impressive with power much closer to the 280, less weight, and fuel milage around 17 average long-term over all driving including on and off road. A couple years ago I had a question about valve adjustment on the engine and called Renntech. They remembered the engine and were most helpful. Quite an impressive outfit.

I have to say I will never have Renntech or Brabus cash but the Renntech cars I have been in have been incredible in regards to being "dialed in" just right, and nicely assembled.

Brabus I only have one experience with Joe Wong's 2000 G500 Brabus 5.8, which was pretty awesome too, including its depreciation curve!

just found some pics..from thunderhill raceway....Joe would tow his nice RSR there behind the G.
