porsche and manthey-racing are celebrating 25 years of their motorsports alliance with this limited-edition 911 gt2 rs clubsport 25. you might think that the gt2 rs is old news since the newer 992-generation 911 is now well into its production run (sans its own gt2), but porsche reassures us that this special-edition race car "bridges the gap" of the two most recent 911 generations. only 30 of them will be built with just six heading to the states, and they'll cost $620,000.
this special-edition customer race car, like the modern-day porsche 935 that porsche commissioned in 2018, is based on the clubsport version of the 991-generation 911 gt2 rs, which was limited to 200 units. it uses the 911 gt2 rs road car's 690-hp twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six and seven-speed pdk dual-clutch automatic transmission. like the other two customer race cars, the 911 gt2 rs clubsport 25 has an adjustable racing suspension, carbon-fiber bodywork, a data logger, and porsche's stability management (psm) system. additionally, it has electric power steering with a variable steering ratio from the 935.
porsche says the new car's livery, which includes those bright green accents that highlight its functional aerodynamics, was inspired by manthey's gt3 r—dubbed "grello" by racing fans because of its color scheme. the clubsport 25's underbody is closed off, and the two large hood vents send air over the roof to the swan-neck rear wing. that small inlet in front of the two scoops is for the cabin's air conditioning.
the stripped-out interior is the same as the standard gt2 rs clubsport, so it's a single-seater with a recaro bucket seat and a roll cage. it has the 991-generation 911's overall dashboard shape with buttons to toggle the stability and traction control systems, and there's a unique badge to show that this race car is exclusive.
if you want to own one of the six u.s.-bound 911 gt2 rs clubsport 25 cars, you'll need $620,000, which is more than double the price of the 911 gt2 rs road car when new. however, although it will be rare (especially in north america), its price sits right between the $478,000 911 gt2 rs clubsport and the $829,000 modern-day 935.
