NEWS: Manthey Racing 911 GT3 RSR Legend Limited Edition Model
Are you a Manthey Racing 911 GT3 RSR N24 fan but can't stretch to the real thing? Why not collect this ace, deadly accurate endurance racing model of the legendary 2011 Manthey Racing GT3 RSR – record-holding multiple N24 winner.
The car that ran to victory that year – making history with five N24 wins in six years – was driven by Marc Lieb, Timo Bernhard, Romain Dumas and Lucas Luhr, aka the 'Manthey dream team.' They drove a blinder and won the 39th edition of the endurance classic in the now iconic yellow-green Porsche 911 GT3 RSR. Team Principal and Green Hell legend, Olaf Manthey recalls the special value of that historic success: "That victory is particularly valuable for me because we made it against so many strong competitors as never before!"
To celebrate that special victory, Manthey has launched a 1:43 scale limited-edition model of just 500 die-cast models (of which only 450 will go on sale). And it's really rather cool – with the car on the left being what it looked like at the start of the race (all shiny and new) and the car on the right being post-24-Hr-race (all battle-scarred, dirty and on different rims). And there's all the facts and figures from the race printed on the base and display case. Nice work!
You can purchase the limited edition model on the newly created web site – www.manthey-shop.de – for €189.
