Renntech Mercedes-Benz C74 at SEMA 2013

Slowing this 605hp racecar is a soon to be released Sicom composite ceramic brake kit

Nov 5, 2013

Stopping power is no less important than reaching speed at a rapid pace. Before you is Hartmut Feyl's Mercedes-Benz C74 build. Feyl was an original AMG member and current Renntech associate - a shop based in south FL.

The C74 is Renntech built and boasts the following performance numbers: 605hp and 555 lb-ft,0-60mph in 3.8sec, quarter-mile in 11.5sec at 125mph and standing mile at 185mph. Top speed is 204mph.

It features KW Suspension, Nitto tires, Akrapovic full exhaust and more. But most importantly for SEMA 2013, it includes the soon to be released Sicom premium composite ceramic brake kit.

Using woven fibers as opposed to chop, which dissipate heat faster and have a longer wear life, the big brake kit is manufactured in Europe and said to be released by mid 2014.

The premium Sicom kit includes rotors, pads, calipers, and all necessary bolt-on hardware. Weight savings in this case is said to be 55 percent over steel. An optional brake duct cooling system will be available as well.

MSRP is TBA but we were told that fronts would be around $9000 with a total package around $16000. Renntech is a North American distributor for Sicom. Sicom began in 1998 but mainly focused on Euro OEM. The past two years it has launched into the aftermarket.
