Florida based tuner RENNtech have released details of their modified Mercedes GLK 350 Hybrid rally racer. If anyone can recall, it was launched at the 2008 SEMA Show to rave reviews. As a result, it became one of the most sought after modified racers in recent history. It appeared in several automotive trade shows while also participating in a number of track events. This year, however, RENNtech has decided to give it a styling overhaul.

The reason? It is preparing for its last publicity tour with Mercedes-Benz USA. It's powered by a 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine that been upgraded with a new intake manifold, upgraded camshafts, revised cylinder heads, a composite air intake, and a remapped ECU. All told, it has 350 hp along with an electric motor that adds an additional 40 lb-ft of torque. You can check out RENNtech's website to see the racer's complete U.S. touring schedule.
