When it comes to fastest production vehicle to conquer Nurburgring, only two names comes to our mind Lamborghini Aventador SVJ and Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR. Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR is seven seconds quicker than the stock 911 GT2 RS and is because of the upgrade provided by Manthey-Racing. The upgraded version was able to lap around Nordsschleife in 6 minutes and 40.33 seconds whereas Aventador SVJ completes the same in 6 minutes and 44.97 seconds. Lamborghini remains one of the fastest road-legal production cars as it used stock model whereas Porsche tweaked with its model.
Now, the question arises how Manthey-Racing manages to shave off extra flab from 911 GT2 RS. Hence, Motor1 got in touch with them to learn from them. To start, aerodynamic package is used on front splitter and rear diffuser along with aero curtain and additional flabs. There is also reinforced engine lid along with modified rear wing with end plates and wing support brackets. They have also developed a custom suspension that has race-spec springs and adjustable rebounds and compression. As supreme stopping power, Manthey-Racing offers new brake pads and a brake line set to provide improved pedestal response with the help of stainless steel woven braid.
Owners of GT2 RS looking for this upgrade kit will please to know that they will release additional water tank and optional magnesium wheels lighter than standard set. The new shoe can be had in Platinum Silver, Gold, Satin Black or Brilliant Silver with aero cover. Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR is powered with twin-turbo flat-six 3.8 liter engine that offers 690hp and 750Nm of torque. Price of this modification cost €77,244 and if customer opts for lighter magnesium wheels, the price inflates to €95,094. Manthey-Racing specializes in Porsche race cars, but also offers services for street-legal cars. Porsche owns 51 percent of the company whose office and testing center is near to Nordschleife.
