The Guys at Manthey Racing Know What They’re Doing

The Porsche 911 GT2 RS is a sensational car, but add Manthey Racing to the end of the name of the car, and it becomes an even more of a beast of a machine. Manthey Racing takes the 911 GT2 RS and improves upon the chassis, aerodynamics, and brakes. This makes the car even better. As Chris Harris of Top Gear says in the video below, “Manthey makes the RS model even more RS.”

Harris gets the opportunity to drive the Manthey Racing GT2 RS at the Portimao Circuit in Portugal. During the day, Harris expresses his admiration for the car’s prowess on the race track praising the car’s smoothness and grip thanks to its suspension, tires, and improved aerodynamics. He went around the racetrack in Portugal two seconds faster in the 911 GT2 RS MR than he did in the McLaren P1.

One of the Porche racing and test drivers previously set a record at the Nürburgring in this car. It made it the fastest road-legal car to lap the Nürburgring. He also sets a record at Portimao Circuit on the day that Harris shoots the video. There’s a short interview well into the video that’s worth watching. You can check out the whole video below.
