The RENM Lamborghini Gallardo STS-700March 12, 2013
RENM, an international tuning and performance company, has created a mouth-watering version of a supercar that most can only dream to see, let alone drive. The 2013 RENM Lamborghini Gallardo STS-700 doesn’t leave much to be desired. The framework for the STS-700 was based on the Super Trofeo Stradale, Lamborghini’s most aggressively tuned Gallardo. The STS-700 is now the closest thing to Lamborghini’s race version, the Blancpain Super Trofeo. I’m giddy.
The STS-700 made the following mods in order to increase speed, performance, braking, and of course…coolness.
• Aerodynamic carbon fiber body kit;
• Increased engine output to 700 PS;
• Valve-controlled titanium exhaust system;
• Chassis and suspension improvements;
• Magnesium race wheels with race tires;
• Carbon ceramic brake kit;
• Light-weight race seats in Alcantara;
• Roll cage, harness and seat belts.
Zero to 60 time was increased to 3.2 seconds with a top speed of 186 mph. Most of the modifications were geared towards shaving down lap times said, Neil Meka, CEO of RENM. “>improved driving dynamics and track performance are the main advantages. Significant reductions in lap times were recorded throughout the vehicle’s development.”
The carbon fiber body kit helps to reduce drag, improve downforce, air-flow, and increase engine and brake cooling. The engine upgrades include titanium connecting rods, billet pistons and crankshaft with an increased compression ratio. Other mods are custom billet camshafts, larger titanium inlet, exhaust valves, ports, manifold and combustion chamber. An additional fuel injector, oil and cooling upgrades help handle the load of all the new bling.
A welcome addition to the STS-700 is the valve-controlled titanium exhaust. it decreases back pressure and improves the flow rate significantly. The big win is the weight reduction from 66 lbs to 24lbs.
The suspension of the STS was dramatically upgraded with an Ohlins three-way adjustable dampers for use on the road and track, a wider wheel track, adjustable front anti-roll bar and wishbone suspension links. Braking was improved with a ceramic brake with high-friction pads that will ultimately reduce brake fade down the stretch.
Overall, the STS-700 is more of a track ready street car. Most people wouldn’t be able to pick out the modifications unless they were a savvy track rider that has had experience with high-performance testing. Other than that, it’s definitely drool worthy in my book.
RENM does yet another bang up job on making a supercar even more super. RENM also does performance upgrades to Audi, BMW, Mercedes AMG,Ferrari, Porsche, Maserati, Bentley VW and VAG. Most projects are for private parties that just want a little extra out of their rides. For instance, the STS-700 was created for a private client out of Brazil. The owner’s response to the STS-700 “The improved power-to-weight ratio, extensive upgrades and high-grade performance components has dramatically improved the driving experience both on and off the track.”
Another happy customer. I wonder what they could do with my 92′ Honda Accord, with performance exhaust… Ballin.
