It's based on the 991-generation 911 GT2 RS Clubsport from 2018 and features a bespoke livery inspired by Grello - Manthey's brightly coloured 911 GT3 R race car, which landed the team a seventh victory in the Nürburgring 24 Hours in June.
Just 30 units will be built, priced from €525,000 (£447,000) before local taxes and expected to be delivered in January. Each will use the same uprated 3.8-litre flat six that featured in 2019’s retro-look 935 track car, sending 690bhp to the rear axle through a seven-speed PDK automatic gearbox, plus several race-inspired modifications aimed at enhancing track performance.
For example, the large, centrally positioned radiator enhances engine cooling over long distances and is less prone to damage; there are now front winglets for enhanced downforce; and a completely closed underbody gives optimum aero efficiency.
Most obviously, two huge vents on the front bonnet funnel air over the double-bubble roof to a sizeable rear wing which, as on the new 911 GT3, is suspended from above for maximum downforce over the rear axle.
Porsche highlights the Clubsport 25's unique headlight designs as a defining feature of the special edition. Inspired by that used for the Manthey-run, Le Mans-winning 911 RSR, their 'four-stripe' format has been specially developed for this car and is said to be "particularly efficient in illuminating the track".
Manthey and Porsche have enjoyed a close relationship since the racing team was founded in 1996 by the eponymous Olaf Manthey.
The team has been 51% owned by Porsche since 2013, and its influence off the track has previously extended to hardcore MR packages for the 911 GT2 RS and 911 GT3.
