Days after the Blancpain GT race in Monza, Manthey Racing tested a host of cars at the Italian race track. Alongside the second ‘Grello’ car that was fresh off the Blancpain GT race, the Porsche works team ran its 2018-updated Porsche 991 RSR for the FIA World Endurance Championship and, most interestingly, a trio of brand-new race cars.
Just three years since the Porsche 991 GT3R was first spotted testing at the Nürburgring, the car has already undergone a major redesign. The new ‘R’ is built upon Porsche’s upgraded 991.2 version of the 911 and sports a new hood, placement for the fuel filler neck, RSR-inspired mirrors, nose design, bigger diffusor, front-fender louvres, additional cooling openings at the rear and many other changes. The manufacturer’s recent announcement of a car unveiling at the 24 Hours of the Nürburgring is expected to feature the 991.2 GT3R.
Earlier this year a modded and camouflaged Porsche 991 GT2RS was seen testing at Estoril. This mysterious machine returned to the race track in Monza and is said to the Clubsport version of the current Nordschleife lap-record holder for road-legal cars.
Finally, an upgraded Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR, rumoured to carry a bigger engine and more advanced aerodynamics was spotted testing.
