The new RENNtech turbos are in! That means my AMG GT R now has over 760hp with the R760 package, so what better than to take it straight away for a lap of the Nurburgring Nordschleife and an Autobahn blast back home.

After dropping the car off with RENNtech Europe at the Nurburgring, the work has been completed so it's time to head in to finish the removal of the stickers from Gumball 3000 and tidy up the glue residue before experiencing what it's like. In addition to the stage 1 updates, for stage 2 the turbos have had some work done to increase airflow and naturally add more horsepower to the top end.

The stock AMG GT R managed 585hp and 700nm, the stage 1 brought it up to 671hp and 797nm and now with the dyno charts we're up to 763hp and 808nm. This is officially the most powerful car I've ever owned it, and it's still my daily driver too!

With RENNtech being based by the Ring, nothing could be better than taking it immediately over for a lap right at the end of the day. With the circuit mostly empty but still rather wet and slippery, it's definitely a cautious stint but fun nonetheless.

The immediate observation is just how incredibly powerful the car is, emphasised even more during my run down the Autobahn to get back home. The mileage on the car is going to continue so I'll get more feel for what it's like to live with a car modified in this way.

      If my AMG GT R wasn't already a true monster, then it is now! Thanks to RENNtech the car has now had upgraded turbos installed and reaches 760hp and 800nm. First stop picking it up is to go for a lap of the Nurburgring (even in the wet) and then blast down the Autobahns home, and honestly it's so fast it touches on being a bit scary...

      Geez! That sound is fantastic, I love it. Driving on the autobahn and the track is the only way to really appreciate a car of this calibre. I can only wish, oh well I guess I’ll have to be happy watching your videos. Thanks.👍👍

      This is the car I am saving my £s for, when they drop in the used market. Shmee is a very lucky guy, the car sounds brutal. I should really flag this video as the exhaust sound is pure filth.🤭

      Looking through your older videos, this has to be one of my favourites. Taking your newly tuned car for a not so slow lap of the Nurburgring in the rain and then bombing down the autobahn. Massive respects Tim 👍

      How much was the 760 upgrade? How does it compare to the pro car you drove on track- is it close(r)? Would you go for this (with/out ecu remap/ full 760 upgrade) over a McLaren for purely fun and enjoyment? Keen to hear your thoughts 😊

      Instead of saying "I'm Shmee" you should say "It's Shmee" 2 in 1. Your youtube name and it sounds loke you are saying 'It's me!"

      If you have english auto generated subtitles on they display ”[Music]” when you start the car so i’d say that Google has made a fantastic subtitle system
