Porsche 911 GT3 with Manthey Performance kit

Porsche Tequipment — the brand’s standard equipment — is offering a Manthey Performance Kit for the current 911 GT3 that helps the car deliver better circuit performance.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • What can be found in the Porsche Manthey Performance kit package?

    The kit for the Porsche 911 GT3 comes with a larger spoiler lip and side flaps at the front, modified air guide elements on the underbody, wider swan-neck-supported wing, a tear-off edge (gurney), extended rear diffuser fins, and rear wheel aero discs that are made up of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer.
  • How much is the price of the Porsche Manthey Performance kit for the 911 GT3?

    The price of the kit starts at €37,911 (around P2.1 million) plus taxes.
  • A test run by the Stuttgart-headquartered company revealed that the 911 GT3 fitted with the new circuit-optimized components — and powered by an engine that can deliver 503 horses — covered the north loop of the Nürburgring track (Nordschleife) in 6:55.737. The lap time is 4.19 seconds faster compared to the same vehicle without the body kit.

     The new kit was created in collaboration between the Porsche engineers in Weissach and the Nordschleife specialists from Manthey in Meuspath.

    In a statement, Porsche said that the Manthey Performance kit sports a larger spoiler lip and side flaps at the front; modified air guide elements on the underbody; wider swan-neck-supported wing, and a tear-off edge (gurney).

    It also features enlarged Manthey logos, as well as extended rear diffuser fins, and rear wheel aero discs that are made of carbon-fiber reinforced polymer.

    Further, Porsche also has a special four-way coilover suspension system for the 911 GT3. The suspension struts can be adjusted to four positions, and rebound and compression can be tweaked without tools. “The moderate changes to the spring rates (10 percent higher on the front axle, seven percent lower on the rear) contribute to improve on-the-limit handling, without making any compromises necessary when it comes to day-to-day usability,” the company explained.

Special racing brake pads are offered as an option for the 911 GT3 with the Manthey Performance Kit.

    Moreover, the Manthey Performance Kit comes with a set of brake lines with steel braids as standard.

    To further enhance aesthetics, door projectors and illuminated door sill guards with the Manthey logo are also featured as part of the package, along with a towing loop.
