The folks over at Porsche Motorsport is celebrating the 25th anniversary with its motorsport partner, Manthey-Racing, with a special edition 911 GT2 RS Clubsport 25.

Matthias Scholz, Director GT Racing Cars, says: "Porsche Motorsport and Manthey have won many races and championships since the team was founded 25 years ago – for example, seven times at the 24 hours at the Nürburging. Since 2013 the two companies have been closely affiliated."

Bred for the track

The special edition model draws inspiration from Manthey's 911 GT3 R because of its distinctive green and yellow livery found on various sections of the body.

Furthermore, it sits on 18-inch rims with central locking in addition to track-focused equipment like a wider rear spoiler, central-exiting exhaust system, space-saving integrated headlights and flared wheel arches that also serve as vents for expelling hot exhaust air. The interior features a welded-in safety cage that complies with FIA standards.
