(from RENM Press
Release) RENM performance Gallardo STS-700
The line between race and street
car has never been so close!
RENM performance has
officially released their Lamborghini Gallardo STS-700. Based on
Lamborghini’s most extreme Gallardo to-date, the Super Trofeo
Stradale, RENM’s STS-700 is the closest thing to a Blancpain Super
Trofeo race car for the road.
The Gallardo STS-700 demonstrates RENM ’s capacity for concept
design and development at the highest levels. The key ingredients
inside our latest project emphasize our core company philosophy of
enhancing and upgrading road-legal sports cars to the highest
standards in performance tuning and design.
Key highlights of the
RENM Gallardo STS-700 program include a number of carefully selected
components and enhancements, which provide the ultimate driving and
racing capabilities requested by the owner:
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 tyres;
• Carbon ceramic brake kit;
• Light-weight race seats in Alcantara;
• Roll cage, harness and seat belts.
“The STS-700 accelerates
from zero to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and reaches a top speed over
330 km/h”, says Neil Meka, CEO, RENM performance. “However, improved
driving dynamics and track performance are the main advantages.
Significant reductions in lap times were recorded throughout the
The Super Trofeo
race-series aerodynamic body kit features replacement body parts
made from lightweight carbon fiber composites, all contributing to
significant weight savings, reduced drag, increased down force,
improved air-flow, and improved engine and brake cooling.
The engine is designed to be reliable and highly responsive,
producing 700 PS at 8,500 rpm. The upgrades include titanium
connecting rods, custom billet pistons and crankshaft with raised
compression ratio. Custom billet camshafts, larger titanium inlet,
exhaust valves, exhaust ports, manifold and combustion chambers are
supplemented with fuel injector, oil and secondary cooling upgrades.
A specially adapted race
and road specification valve-controlled titanium exhaust system is
used in the STS-700. The highly efficient exhaust system decreases
back pressure, improves flow rate while reducing weight from 30 kg
to 11 kg, a weight loss of 63 percent.
The extensive chassis
and suspension modifications include a wider wheel track, Ohlins
three-way fully adjustable dampers suitable for both race and road
use, adjustable front anti-roll bar and wishbone suspension links.
All suspension upgrades remain compatible with the OEM front height
An upgraded carbon ceramic brake kit is calibrated for optimal
response and performance. Using higher friction brakes pads, the
brake configuration reduces weight in rotating masses. Revised
cooling chambers and air flow inlets eliminate all brake fading.
The matte black finish
accentuates the dark red race exterior. Black and red also dominate
the interior which is composed of Alcantara and carbon fiber
elements, including lightweight race seats in matching alcantara.
Interior upgrades include modified gear shifters, customized roll
cage with four-point harness, seat belts and fire extinguisher.
power-to-weight ratio, extensive upgrades and high-grade performance
components has dramatically improved the driving experience both on
and off the track,“ states the Brazilian owner of the STS-700.
The Gallardo STS-700
demonstrates RENM’s capacity to develop a comprehensive and
integrated program for the Super Trofeo Stradale, one that raises
performance and vehicle dynamics to an entirely new level.
