Porsche is excited to announce the arrival of the Manthey Kit, a specialized upgrade for the 718 Cayman GT4 RS designed to unleash its full potential on race tracks. With an impressive lap time of 7:03.121 minutes at the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife, this powerhouse, equipped with the Manthey Kit, outperforms its predecessor by over six seconds. Developed in close collaboration between Porsche Motorsport engineers and the renowned Nordschleife specialists at Manthey, this upgrade focuses on enhancing aerodynamics and chassis components, delivering an unparalleled track experience.
Enhanced Aerodynamics for Unmatched Performance
The Manthey Kit stands out with its comprehensive modifications to the car's additional functional aero parts. Up front, flaps, new air curtains, a wheel arch Gurney flap, and a carbon underbody with diffusers work in harmony to increase downforce and optimize airflow. At the rear, a wider wing with larger side blades not only contributes to improved downforce but also offers four adjustable positions, allowing drivers to tailor their setup. Reinforced with a carbon-weave finish, the rear engine cover ensures the car can withstand higher aerodynamic forces. To further optimize aerodynamics, carbon fiber reinforced plastic aerodiscs are installed on the rear wheels, reducing turbulence and providing a visually appealing finish. Additionally, the total downforce increases from 196 to 372 lbs when the rear wing is set to the Performance position, specifically designed for track use.
Tailored Suspension for Exceptional Handling
In collaboration with Manthey, Porsche has developed a specially designed coilover suspension system for the 718 Cayman GT4 RS. This inverted setup offers four adjustable positions for the spring struts, while the rebound and compression stages can be easily fine-tuned without the need for tools. The front suspension now features increased spring rates by 20 percent, enhancing the car's agility and responsiveness on the track. The kit is available in two versions, catering to both vehicles with and without a front axle lift system. Furthermore, steel brake lines are included as a standard component, ensuring precise pressure and optimal braking performance. For those seeking the ultimate braking capabilities, optional racing brake pads with consistent friction behavior across a wide temperature range are available. To add a personal touch, illuminated door sill guards featuring the distinctive Manthey logo are available, along with purpose-built towing loops designed specifically for track usage.
Refined Carbon-Weave Finishes for a Distinctive Look
For enthusiasts seeking even more visual impact, the Manthey Kit can be further enhanced with a specially designed carbon-fiber rear spoiler attachment. This component, combined with the larger rear wing, increases downforce on the rear axle by approximately four percent, accentuating the car's performance-oriented design. Complementing the look of the Weissach package, optional carbon-fiber wheel arch vents on the front fenders complete the striking aesthetic.
Conquering the Nürburgring Nordschleife
At the iconic Nürburgring Nordschleife, the 718 Cayman GT4 RS with the Manthey Kit showcases its unrivaled capabilities. With Porsche brand ambassador Jörg Bergmeister behind the wheel, this modified GT sports car conquered the 12.9-mile course, setting an impressive lap time of 7:03.121 minutes. Equipped with the optional Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires, it surpassed the previous year's series-production 718 Cayman GT4 RS by over six seconds. The lap time was officially certified by a notary on-site, solidifying its extraordinary performance.
Availability and Pricing
Exciting news for the U.S. market: the Manthey Kit for the 718 Cayman GT4 RS will soon be available. Stay tuned for updates regarding its availability and pricing, and rest assured that the manufacturer's warranty for the 718 Cayman GT4 RS remains unaffected.
