Heading to the Palm Beach Barrett-Jackson auction is this 2004 custom Renntech Mercedes-Benz SL600 with a seriously flashy chrome coating. The “Chrome Edition” SL600 with a modified 6.0L V12 is the only example produced by Mercedes tuner Renntech.

All proceeds from the Renntech SL600 auction, which will be sold on April 5, will benefit the Doug Mansfield Foundation Trust. Those that followed the modified car scene will remember this SL debuting at the SEMA Show several years ago, shocking the world as the first of its kind with its chrome exterior treatment.

Along with the AMG Sport Package, the SL600 has plenty of upgrades from Renntech. Improvements include an upgraded ECU, TCU, carbon fiber airbox, and enhanced axle shafts. Both the transmission and suspension have been upgraded along with massive 15.2-inch, 8-piston front brakes, and 13-inch rear rotors.

There is no reserve set on the Renntech SL600.
