The Porsche was fitted with an MR Performance Kit, which has been developed with a focus on track days and club racing. The kit has undergone extensive testing and numerous laps on a range of race circuits to ensure that the Manthey-Racing products for road cars provide the best possible performance.
“We were impressed by how fast Kévin was in our car. I was pleased to see in the video analysis how relaxed he can drive the Porsche 911 GT3 RS MR fast on the Nordschleife. One of the goals behind the development of our performance kits is drivability. We aim to give our customers the confidence to get fast lap times safely,” said Christoph Breuer, project leader for road cars at Manthey/PSZ.
In preparation for the timed lap, only minimal changes were made to the set-up of the 911 as it is supplied to customers. The only non-road-legal component was the racing seat, which was fitted to ensure the safety of the driver.
“It was a wonderful feeling to complete the short lap in under 6:50 minutes. The car felt great. It’s unbelievable, especially in the fast corners. The crazy thing is that the times aren’t far off those of our GT3 R, the Grello. I’m very proud to have been able to drive this lap for Manthey-Racing,” said Kévin Estre.
The performance kit is based on the modifications made to the Porsche 911 GT2 RS MR, which, among other things, holds the record for the fastest modified sports car on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife.
