GERMAN MOTORS OFFERS RENNTECH PERFORMANCE

Posted on 12/04/2015

Performance without compromise. This is the foundation upon which RENNtech has built their reputation. Established in 1989 by Hartmut Feyhl, RENNtech has evolved and grown from humble beginnings into the foremost authority on luxury automobile performance tuning and offers complete tuning solutions for Mercedes Benz, Porsche, VW, Audi and Bentley vehicles.

Over the years, RENNtech has developed high-performance products for virtually all Mercedes-Benz AMG vehicles (including the commercial Mercedes Sprinter van and SMART vehicles). Some of the most notable among these are the 200 mph RENNtech E7.4RS (which was called fastest sedan in the world by Car and Driver in 1996) and the 2006 "Chrome SL" show car—an SL-based project entirely covered in chrome. Each of these vehicles featured extreme performance, upgraded luxury features, and a fit and finish that rivaled factory vehicles.

Historically, RENNtech has been a prominent Mercedes-Benz specialist, and Feyhl himself is regarded by many as the USA's foremost authority on Mercedes tuning. His vast experience comes from his 12 years spent at AMG well before the tuning company became part of Mercedes-Benz in 1999, then going onto serve as that company's North American technical director prior to branching out on his own to start RENNtech.

Recently, RENNtech has begun to offer performance products for other marques specifically Porsche, Volkswagen/Audi, BMW and Bentley vehicles. The product offerings focus on RENNtech's core competencies such as performance engine tuning, suspension, exhaust and custom fabrication.

RENNtech is an authorized Akrapovic exhaust dealer and also the exclusive North & South American distributor for Aixro rotary race engines. Our Aixro race engines also power the worlds fastest and exclusive racing karts, the RENNtech SLR kart, which is built in house by RENNtech.

RENNtech designs, engineers and manufacturers their proprietary line of tuning products in-house at our facility which features a full fabrication and machine shop with CNC and rapid prototype capabilities; an in house performance dyno, complete engine management and software tuning capabilities; a complete service/repair/installation facility and a full time design, engineering and sales staff.

2015 Lamborghini Huracan

Posted on 11/30/2015

Lamborghini Huracan –

Lamborghini is widely known for being the automotive marque that loves to push

the limit, and the successor to the famous Gallardo is no exception, welcome to the

Lamborghini Huracan. Named for a famous fighting bull renowned for its strength

and courage, the Lamborghini Huracan does its best to honor the namesake. With

its gorgeous and absolute design, groundbreaking performance and unparalleled

quality, the Huracan is a supercar unto itself.

The Huracan is immersive luxury meets hardcore race car. With the finest tufted

leather and alacantra interior, the fighter jet inspired instrumentation and controls

make the interior very cosseting, while at the helm of a 610 horsepower track

monster. A true fighting bull in a bespoke suit makes the Lamborghini Huracan truly

a one of a kind experience. Lamborghini has once again set the benchmark for

redefining the supercar.

The new 5.2 liter V10 engine in the Huracán generates its massive 610 hp at 8,250

rpm and a maximum torque of 560 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The new "Iniezione Diretta

Stratificata" combines direct and indirect injection - achieving an increase in power

and torque compared with its successor and a decrease in fuel consumption and

emissions as well. Mated to the 7-speed dual clutch transmission, Lamborghini's

new 'Doppia Frizione' (Dual Clutch) gearbox, the transmission performs differently

depending on the mode the driver has selected. Lamborghini’s special all-wheel

drive system that is electronically controlled and therefore faster and extremely

precise in transferring the torque between axles, according to the road situation and

the dynamic mode.

With incredible power, comes incredible speed. The Lamborghini Huracan's top

speed is over 325 km/h (202 mph) The Huracan can also accelerate from 0 to

100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.2 seconds and from 0 to 200 km/h (124 mph) in just 9.9

seconds. With a relatively light weight of 1,422 kg (3,135 lb), the Huracán has a

power-to-weight ratio of 2.36 kg (5.20 lb) per horsepower. Rivalling the same power

to weight ratio of the venerable Bugatti Veyron.

Hitting the Road For the Holidays

Posted on 11/13/2015

It is that time of year again, when we all bring our families together, and in most cases; time to hit the open road. 85% of all Americans travel more than 50 miles to be with family, and in many instances, hundreds more. This isn't including the miles we put on to do our shopping for presents, or the short trips to the markets to get the turkeys, hams and all the fixings. Road trips around this time of year for Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa or New Years are almost a guarantee for all of us, wether it be around the corner, or across state lines.

Something that is overlooked but VERY important, is that we have a good, reliable vehicle to do it all in. While we are all limited to budgetary constraints this time of year, undue automotive repair costs can be very inconvenient and unpleasant. One way to combat this, is to make sure that our vehicles are ready to gain the holiday miles.

This is also the time of year when the temperature drops, and your car may start to act a little funny. Important to check are the rubber items, belts, hoses, wiring, tires and wipers must be inspected for any cracking, wear, dryness and are a very easy fix. Also important before hitting the road are fluids and filters, to ensure the best performance of the vehicle in terms of fuel consumption, cooling system performance. Get the battery checked as well, as a very important specification on all batteries are cold-cranking amps (CCA,) as cold start conditions are hard on the vehicle's charging system.

At German Motors, we can help you and your family hit the road for the Holiday Season. These types of repairs come at minimal costs, and protect you and your vehicle from costly repairs or unforseen breakdowns. Bring your vehicle into German Motors for any service, and recieve a complimentary inspection to get your vehicle ready for the Holiday Season!

Happy Holidays,

German Motors

What do the Letters attached to Services Mean?

On your Mercedes Benz, you may have noticed that after a certain amount of mileage, you received a notification that says Service “ due with a corresponding letter attached to it. These letters will range from A-H, just depending on what your car requires and what type of mileage you have driven since your last service. These letters are designations of the labor time and type of service necessary for your Mercedes at that time.

Current and recent Mercedes Benz models will have a multitude of sensors that monitor your brakes, tires, fluids and most of the important things happening with your car. Washer fluid, Brake fluid, Power steering fluid, transmission fluid, coolant, tire pressures, brake condition and filter conditions are all monitored by these letters. Some are corresponding to the mileage driven and some are actively monitoring the conditions of each component.

What do the Letters Mean?

These services will approximate the amount of work needed by the letter designation of your Service. Service A is about one hour of service needed, this is typically an oil change, vehicle inspection, tire rotation and possibly a cabin filter or engine air filter. Service B is anywhere between 2-3 hours of service and includes an oil change, tire rotation,, vehicle inspection, brake fluid flush, cabin filter and air filter change.  

These letters are the corresponding codes all the way up to H and can also include transmission filter and fluid change, brake services, spark plug replacement, serpentine belt replacement, coolant flush, air conditioning service, battery replacement, suspension components and any other regularly scheduled maintenance items.
