The W140 was Mercedes Benz’s flagship model from 1991 to 1998. Available in a standard or long wheelbase and with a variety of engine options, the big Mercedes was one of the most comfortable cars on the road. But it wasn’t until Renntech got its hands on one that it became a true performance machine.
The original S-class was fast, but it didn’t have the sort of performance that would make you want to take it to the track. Renntech saw the potential in the W140 and set out to create a car that would be at home on both the street and the racetrack. The result is the S76R, a supercharged V8 monster that produces an incredible 740 horsepower and 738 lb-ft of torque.
To achieve this level of performance, Renntech started with a 6.0-liter V8 and added a Roots-type supercharger. They also installed larger brakes, 19-inch wheels, and a suspension system that lowers the car by 1.5 inches. The interior has been reupholstered in suede and leather, and there’s even an optional roll cage for those who want to take their S76R to the track.
The Mercedes W140 was already a great car, but Renntech’s S76R takes it to another level entirely. With 740 horsepower on tap, this supercharged V8 monster is sure to turn heads both on the street and on the racetrack. If you’re looking for a truly unique performance car, then look no further than the S76R.
