limited edition 300 pieces
The Nordschleife at the Nürburgring, also known as the Green Hell, has always been a yardstick for motorsport. That's why the 911 GT2 RS MR also had to prove itself here. In cooperation with Porsche, a Manthey Racing Performance Kit was developed specifically for the Nordschleife. Under these conditions, the time finally came on 25 October 2018: with a time of 6:40.3 minutes, Porsche works driver Lars Kern was able to set a new lap record on the 20.6-kilometre circuit. This made the Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR the fastest road car ever to race on the Nordschleife. It was also a unique experience for Lars Kern: "It was tremendous fun. [...] I only had one attempt that day due to the onset of darkness. It worked right away."
On the occasion of the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2017, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS was presented to the public. The GT2 RS is the sports version of the Porsche 911 Turbo, which scores with its lower weight thanks to the comfort-reduced equipment and is equipped with higher performance thanks to its pure rear-wheel drive.
The version of the Manthey Racing Team, the Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR comes up with another significant performance boost. Thanks to specially tuned modifications and extensive fine-tuning, they were able to set various records for road-legal sports cars on the world's most famous endurance tracks, such as the Nürburgring Nordschleife, in the following years.
The model in 1/43 scale is limited to 300 pieces. It was produced in the usual high Minichamps quality and reflects the original in the best possible way.
