The Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren has been turned into this 'world's fastest SLR' by a partnership that includes Platinum Motorsport, RENNtech, MACarbon and Exotics Boutique.
The body aerodynamics come courtesy of the Mansory Renovatio Body Kit while RENNtech supplies the performance upgrade which includes a modified supercharger. Output is around 770 hp (574 kW / 781 PS) and this SLR does the quarter-mile in 10.29 seconds at a speed of 134 mph (216 km/h).
RENNtech also upgrades the transmission hardware to accommodate a smoother transfer of all that power to the drive wheels.
For the suspension RENNtech adds Racing Coilovers with 3-way adjustability as well as an hydraulic lift kit that adjusts the height by 45 mm.
Wheels are the 20-inch Agetro M140 monoblock rims.
This SLR will be on display at SEMA in Las Vegas next month.

Custom Front Hydraulic Lift kit with Remote
-The HLS 2 (Hydraulic Lift System) provides additional road clearance for lowered vehicles by raising the front axle suspension via the push of a button. When expanded, a range of up to 45 mm of lift is produced, thereby helping sport cars avoid road clearance difficulties such as speed bumps, road construction, etc. The system contained within the rear of the vehicle and is actuated by a push button on the optional remote (there by eliminating the need for any interior wiring).
RENNTECH Mercedes 722.6 Five Speed Transmission upgrade
-With increased engine performance it becomes necessary to further improve the drive line components, most importantly the transmission in order to ensure maximum power is transmitted to the drive wheels without transmission slippage. This cannot be realized with software and only truly be accomplished by an internal mechanical upgrade to the transmission hardware. Our upgrade leads to improved shift response, shift timing and greater drivability under extreme conditions without sacrificing around town comfort. Our mechanical upgrades provide years of trouble free operation and have been tested to in vehicles producing over 800 hp and 1000 lb/ft of torque. The transmission is reassembled using all new gaskets, seals, o-rings, electrical connectors as well as a new transmission pan filter.
RENNTECH Performance differential, Super-Lock LSD
-Functions as a traditional open differential in low and normal-load situations, transforming smoothly into a 100% full lock as loads rise.
RENNTECH SLR Performance Brakes
-16.2" Front Brakes, 8 piston calipers
-14.2" Rear Brakes
-High-Performance Brake Pads
-Braided Steel Lines (front and rear)
