This ML60 RS retains much of its factory ML55 appearance including the AMG body kit and factory HID headlamps. A few exterior details including 19x9-inch lightweight RENNtech Monolite wheels, exhaust tips, and lowered stance indicates that this is not a standard ML. Displayed behind the wheels, 15-inch front and 14-inch rear discs are mated with Brembo four-piston calipers. The wheels are wrapped in Michelin Latitude tires measuring 285/45/19 all around.
Suspension modifications include Eibach springs and dual adjustable Koni shocks. Larger sway bars are also fitted to further reduce body roll and in total, lowers the ML approximately 3 inches. RENNtech also installed performance headers and downpipes with sport catalytic converters before finishing off with an upgraded muffler and tips. Per the Carfax, this ML has been serviced by a Mercedes-Benz dealership and a minor accident was reported in 2006 and 2016. Reportedly, the 2006 was the result of a driveway mishap.
The interior is finished with AMG-specific Black Leather with burl wood accents. For the model year 2000, the W163 underwent some welcomed engineering improvements such as richer dash materials and better door sealing among various other refinements. The original ML55 AMG labeled floor mats still accompanies the SUV as well as a set of all-season rubber mats. A burl wood RENNtech shift knob has been added and the factory AMG gauges remain original with all pixels in working order.
Power is transferred to the wheels by a 5-speed tiptronic transmission which has been upgraded and reinforced by RENNtech. An upgraded rear subframe also helps to eliminate squat under acceleration. Underbody photos are provided in the gallery and include pictures of the suspension, brakes, and exhaust. Walk-around and driving videos are provided below.
