Jalopnik had the honor of test driving the RENNtech Mercedes C63 AMG SPEC.R. It's a beautiful car, but one of the most interesting features is the radar jamming system built into the rear-view mirror.

Amazingly enough, the system worked flawlessly in Jalopnik's test. The savings in speed tickets alone means that this car will pay for itself in time. Well...maybe not. Hit up Jalopnik to get the full test-drive details. [Jalopnik]

One of my buddies has an older S320 (w140 chassis) with an integral radar/laser detector/jammer. I don't know if the part is factory or aftermarket, but he apparently just updated the "functional" part of the system to handle newer detection systems. It has sensors/emitters behind the grill and embedded in the rear bumper and there's a display system with mode/signal/status etc in the instrument cluster. It's the only S I've ever seen with this system, but it looks like it belongs and is at least 15 years older than this system.
