SEMA 2008: Mercedes-Benz RENNTech Pikes Peak GLK Hybrid

While admittedly not as offensive as the Urban Whip GLK tuned for Mercedes by Boulevard Customs, RENNTech’s Pikes Peak GLK Hybrid still appears to have exercised a questionable amount of taste in regards to the aftermarket accessories. Apparently abandoning the novel concept of “tastefully understated” design, the RENNTech Pikes Peak GLK also features a rear spoiler with approximately the same wingspan as a mature osprey. Under the hood, however, RENNTech seems to have done it right, outfitting the Pikes Peak GLK Hybrid with a supercharged V6 capable of producing an impressive 375 horsepower and 320 pounds-feet of torque.

  1. Just a quick comment: none of the Mercedes tuners “chose” their themes – BLVD was told to build an “urban whip”, RENNtech a “rally racer”, Brabus an “autobahn stormer”, and Legendary a “rock crawler” (don’t get me started)

    Of the 4 – everyone but Brabus delivered a theme vehicle. Brabus just did exactly what they always do. Nice job – but totally missed the point.
