• Renntech raises the M157 tuning bar even higher setting a new record by running 11.2@126 in a C218 CLS63 AMG

      Congratulations yet again to Renntech. Not too long ago a Renntech tuned CLS 63 AMG ran 11.3@125 which stood for almost 2 months as the M157 record. The record is now 11.2@126 with a run in negative density altitude at Palm Beach International Raceway. The vehicle was listed as running on slicks and we do not know the fuel but assume race gas. Regardless, well done. 10's are right around the corner for this platform which is just barely getting warmed up.

        Do we know what other models will be getting the M157?? This motor in the C would be sick.

        Next generation C may get it although then things will truly be bananas.

        So far just the big boys. Next car to get it will be the SL.

        M156 will likely last the C63 BS and SLS production runs. So a few more years I would think at most.

        Next gen C should be debuting next year. Likely a 2013 model.

        Not dumb necessarily. The SLS is supposed to more raw/responsive and you want a high revving NA beast for that. The SLS is designed to do more than drag race.

        Exactly...and the motor in the SLS is very different from a regular M156...not to mention being dry sumped. Can't wait to see if they really do make an SLS Black Series. That thing will be the baddest mofo on the street.
