Four tuners arrive at SEMA 2008 having worked on Mercedes-Benz GLK as their showcar. The public votes for the best. Will it be Brabus, RennTech, Legendary Motor Cars or Boulevard Customs?
In a great marketing tactic, Mercedes-Benz is pitting four top tuners against one another in an online and mobile public vote. The luxury auto maker will enter SEMA 2008 in Las Vegas using a four-way attack plan with one piece of machinery at the center; its new GLK mid-sized SUV. These four tuned cars have been prepared by masters in their game, namely RennTech, Brabus, Boulevard Customs and Legendary Motor Cars.
Legendary Motor Cars offers the Four Corners Rock Crawler which comes with a winching system for those who like their sports extreme. The Urban Whip, which really has nothing to do with girls in tight leather shorts, is a Boulevard Customs design, with its wide-body styling kit, massive 26-inch wheels and a redesigned interior with its own customized stereo system.
RennTech went clean on this one, featuring a hybrid engine in its Rally Racer GLK. The concept was inspired by unlimited-class rally cars at Pikes Peak Hillclimb. Lastly we have Brabus, a name synonymous with what seems to be unlimited power offerings. Their car, the Widestar, is based in a GLK300 Bluetec and features wide wheel arches and a unique interior. The winner of the public vote will be announced on December 2, 2008.
