Teaser Video! 650 horsepower 2012 Mercedes CLS63 AMG with RENNtech tune – Acceleration Video – Road Test TV

October 13th, 2011 by Road Test TV

Tonight we took a RENNtech tuned 2012 Mercedes CLS63 AMG to the dragstrip at Palm Beach International Raceway (PBIR). This is the same CLS63 BiTurbo that made over 650 horsepower and 700 lb/ft of torque after receiving a RENNtech tune. We arrived at PBIR, teched in, entered the staging lanes; however, before we could make a pass, the heavens opened up and rained on our parade.  So we aren’t able to provide video the car running the 1/4 mile – yet.  Instead, we figured we would give you a short teaser video of the RENNtech 2012 CLS63 AMG accelerating from 35 mph to 100 mph (55 km/h – 160 km/h). You can see from the video that the new V8 BiTurbo with a RENNtech tune is going to hurt some egos on the street. 

We at RoadTestTV have driven many AMG Mercedes over the years and are happy to report that the new V8 BiTurbo is a force to be reckoned with. Even with drag radials mounted on 18 inch wheels, the BiTurbo RENNtech CLS63 has enough grunt to annihilate the drag radials from a roll. You can imagine what happens from a dead stop – pure smoke show.  We’ll have a full test on the 2012 CLS63 as soon as we get some dry weather.
