Mercedes-Benz specialists Renntech have applied their ideas to the CLS63 AMG and then pitted it against the 2012 Nissan GT-R.
Renntech has been known for performing great work on Mercedes-Benz, and with their take on the CLS63 AMG, they stepped their game up to another level and pitted it against the notorious 2012 Nissan GT-R on the drag strip.

Performance numbers for the Benz have increased greatly, hitting 60mph from rest in only 3.4 seconds. Renntech was so confident in their work that they took it down to the Palm Beach International Raceway and pitted it against the drag strip specialist 2012 Nissan GT-R.
