RENN HAUS used the Speedriven package for this Mercedes S600. This package featured a set of matt black top-mounted water-to-air intercoolers, “scorpion” air intakes, K&N cone filters and ECU software tune to manage the extra air density and extra boost. We also upgraded the transmission controller allowing the car to handle the extra torque and giving the S600 a more “true” manual mode to hold gears more aggressively while delivering quicker, firmer shifts in “Sport” mode. Yet the Comfort mode retains the S600′s usual silkiness.

The transmission was rebuilt by
Steven Jones of RENN HAUS to handle the 950 lb ft of torque at the flywheel by installing reinforced clutches for the forward five gears.A Block Tuner with the tuned program and stock program communicates directly with the vehicle’s ECU, allowing one to easily switch between the high-performance tuning software and the factory file in a matter of minutes.

Steve also fabricated a custom exhaust from the headers back using 3” 304 stainless steel tubing and custom tips.

A remote digital lowering module was installed for customizing the ride height for differing situations.

The brake system was upgraded to the RENN HAUS Big Brake Kit with front 8 piston calipers and 16” rotors along with rear 4 piston calipers and 13” rotors along with steel brake lines.

RENN HAUS chose Vorsteiner V104 monoblock forged wheels in matt black; 20” x 8.5” front and 20” x 9.5” rear. These were fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport PS2’s measuring 255/35ZR20 front and 285/30ZR20 rear.

This is one BAD A—luxury sedan!
