Those of you born in the 21st century wouldn’t know, but kids of the 90s will remember this E-Class body as one of the most iconic sedans of that era. That makes this 1997 RENNtech Mercedes E60 S a true blast from the past. And it’s so freakin’ cool!
What’s particularly amazing about the RENNtech Mercedes E60 S, or any sporty version of this E-Class typ such as the AMG models, is how well this design responds to modifications. The standard body is frankly quite dull. But bolt on a front and rear spoiler and some wide fenders, and throw in a set of nice wheels, and voila, it becomes taut and ripped and aggressive.
Besides the visual treatment RENNtech Mercedes E60 S also came with a power V8 engine and a range of performance upgrades that made it one of the manliest sedans of its time. The 6.0 liter V8 in this car churns out 404 hp and more than 480 lb-ft of torque, propelling the car from 0 to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 192 mph.
The list of performance mods on this badass E-Class include: Custom Stainless Steel Sport Muffler – Upgraded Five-Speed Transmisson – Hand Ported and Polished Cylinder Heads – Custom Designed RENNtech Performance Camshafts – Custom RENNtech Air box with High-Flow Air Filter – RENNtech Lowering Springs – Limited Slip Differential – RENNtech/Alcon High Performance Front Brake System – All-Aluminum Four-Piston Calipers – 13″ front vented rotors – Stainless Steel Brake LInes – Performance Brake Pads. We’d have this over a new E63 AMG in a heartbeat.
