Track-learned aero components highlight Manthey upgrades
Magnesium wheels, upgraded brake pads available
Manthey-Racing is the most successful Porsche customer racing team in the world, and that’s not just the team talking. Porsche put that on its own website. With eight Porsche Supercup titles, five 24H Nürburgring 24h overall wins, and two Le Mans class titles, the company knows its way around a 911. So naturally, they’re turning their talents to a roadgoing 911 to make the 991.2 even more impressive. The 911 GT3 RS MR is the company’s latest shot at the 911.
Taking track-based lessons to quicken the Porsche 911 GT3, Manthey-Racing focuses on aero, brakes, and suspension, though the massive wing and bright green paint of this one don’t exactly make it a wallflower. Suspension changes come in the form of three or four-way adjustable coilovers for the car, letting you tune it to your track, roads, and driving style.
The aero pack’s massive rear wing is the most obvious piece, and it comes with big side plates and carbon mounting brackets to help cut weight and maximise downforce. There are a carbon engine cover and Gurney flap as well as canards and other aero devices all over the vehicle.
Those wheels are magnesium and MR’s design, and hiding underneath are MR brake pads and braided brake lines. The engine isn’t changed, which means 520 hp from the 4.0L flat-six and a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch.
