Drag Test!!! SL65 Mercedes AMG with RENNtech tune and Airbox 10.93 @ 129 mph (209 km/h) – Drag Video – Road Test TV

December 3rd, 2011 by Road Test TV

At the recent StreetCarDrags.com event held at Palm Beach International Raceway, we captured at a RENNtech modified SL65 making a few passes. The SL65 had a RENNtech tune and airbox, but still maintained its stock intercoolers, stock exhaust, stock cats, and stock heat exchangers. In essence, other than the tune and airbox, the car was stock. The weather wasn’t the best as it was hot, humid and periodically raining (DA +1500); however, after a brief cool down, the SL laid down an impressive 10.93 at nearly 130 mph (129.67 mph/209 km/h to be exact).  In better weather, the SL should run the quarter mile in the 10.70s at over 130 mph. 

For reference, this SL65 ran the 1/4 mile in 11.50 – 11.60 @ 120  – 121 mph when stock.  That’s a gain of 6 tenths and 10 mph (16 km/h) with only a tune and airbox.
