If I could find whoever spec’d this car out, I would give them a firm, but polite, handshake to thank them for bringing this car into the world for all of us to enjoy. This 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS up for sale in Northwest Germany is finished in none other than paint-to-sample Irish Green, and boy does it look amazing. Even better, the madmen at Manthey Racing put a few little special touches on this.

Errors and changes excepted.
As if this car wasn’t perfect enough, Manthey Racing, the people who ran a 6:40 at the Nurburgring, tweaked the suspension, aero, and added a full roll cage. I’m a little iffy about full roll cages in street cars, but it certainly seems like this one was setup for the race track judging by the tow straps and harnesses that are already installed. I’m also usually not a huge fan of black wheels, but this setup just works here. It was also a nice detail that they painted the calipers black as well.
As for the price, what did you expect? This one is almost $220,000, but it does only have just under 1,300 miles on it. If you are the kind of person who plays ball in the Porsche RS game, that price tag probably isn’t a big deal as it isn’t too outrageous. I just wish I was in the game.
The Irish Green is indeed lovely but as the description states, it’s just a vinyl wrap. The paint colour underneath is stated to be “ultraviolet”.
I would rather see it in the original ultraviolet…and really that price is insane…pretty close to the price of a new one. You would really want to own that particular car .
Wow, for a wrap that looks spectacular. It seems to be almost as shiny as paint. That’s impressive. Most gloss wraps I’ve seen in person you can clearly tell it’s been messed with. Not so on this car. Again, at least in these photos (which appear to have been edited quite a healthy amount). Lovely looking car, but I really can’t wait for this black wheel craze to die off. Silver is so much better looking.
I don’t comment much on this site because I think you all are a lot more savvy than I, but here’s something that puzzles me: Andrew, you write, “… it certainly seems like this one was setup for the race track judging by the tow straps and harnesses that are already installed.” I agree, but the rest of the car seems designed to be so “street-able” (Alcántara on the wheel, the electronics visible, the options codes selected, etc.). So, who buys a car like this and, for what purpose? As a track monster, there’s a lot more needed. As a street car, there’s a lot that could be deleted and still keep it potent. I am a vintage Porche owner myself and a PCA member. I know about club racing and know how dedicated many are. But something like this seems to be for a well-off dilettante. What’s the market for a Porsche like this?
There are a lot of cars like this in Europe. People take them to racetracks on the weekends, hence the cage/tow straps/harnesses. It’s a different style than a lot of people use in the US.
I’ve never seen a wrap that looked like a real painted finish until now. Kudos to the shop who did it.
Regarding the choice of alcantara on the wheel, it provides a grippier finish when your hands get sweaty vs. leather (allegedly). By the way, alcantara has disappeared from the Porsche lineup for 2021, replaced with Race-Tex.
The pricing on this is stupid, however. You can get a real PTS 991.1 3RS here in America for 180K all day long. There was a nice green one for sale in Salem Oregon for quite a long time at that price (not sure if it ever sold or not).
I always raced with leather wrapped wheels (except on one car) and the the wheels were not slippery…but I always wore race gloves.
I second Weston’s comment. Combo track day/street cars are much more common in Europe.
MR K, you can’t compare European prices to equivalent US prices. In my experience, if you have two identical cars, the European one will always be more expensive. I can’t remember why. It might be due to their taxes?
