Porsche Reveals Manthay-Modified 911 GT2 RS Clubsport 25 Track Car

Trackday special celebrates long racing relationship

  • Celebrating 25 years of an intense racing relationship

  • Clubsport 25 gets loads of racecar parts for limited edition car


Porsche is celebrating 25 years of a partnership with Manthey-Racing by launching a special version of the GT2 RS. The Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport 25 is limited to just 30 and is meant purely for track days and wheel-to-wheel racing.

The base of the Clubsport 25 is a 690 hp twin-turbo 3.8L flat-six. It sends its power to the rear wheels through a seven-speed PDK box, and it is loaded with tech from both current and future Porsche race cars. From the current cars, including the 935 of 2018, it has 18-inch wheels with a central single nut. The wheels give the car a wider track for more grip and stability, while the electronic systems and the steering ratio are also from the 935.

At the back, a rear wing gets new side plates and swan-neck brackets for uninterrupted airflow. There’s a rear spoiler as well to allow better airflow separation, and vents under the rear window help air circulate and cool the engine bay. Manthey built the rear diffuser, which makes the taillights pop, while the rear rain lights meet current rules requirements for track use.

The headlights are from the Le Mans-winning 911 RSR, but have been further developed for this car to better illuminate the track at night. They also integrate the turn signals. For safety, the welded cage meets FIA rules and comes from the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport. The graphics pack comes from Manthey’s typical race livery, known around the ‘Ring as Grello.

“With the 911 GT2 RS Clubsport 25 special edition, which we designed and developed in conjunction with Porsche Motorsport, we’ve reached another milestone in the 25-year history of Manthey. It’s a perfect example of our guiding principle ‘Closer to Perfection,’” said Nicolas Raeder, Managing Director of Manthey-Racing.

The Manthey team started in 1996 and has been racing with Porsche ever since. Their accomplishments include seven overall wins at the Nurburgring 24 hours as well as many other motorsports wins. The team is now majority-owned by Porsche, making it the brand’s semi in-house race team.

No word on price or delivery dates for the new car.
