2009 MNR Vortx RT

Yamaha R1 powered kit car.

Originally founded in 1998 by former British Touring Car Championship driver and race team owner Marc Nordon, MNR Sportscars started life as a race preparation subsidiary of Bintcliffe Sport and Xcel Motorsport, responsible for the preparation and support of their BTCC, Ascar, British GT, Clio cup campaigns, supporting some notable drivers including Darren Manning, Jason Plato, Matt Neal, Colin Mcrae and many more leading names. Since those early days, MNR Sportscars has earned a reputation as one of the leading producers of hand-built road and race cars in Europe. From the rural location in North Yorkshire, England, MNR design, manufacture and build a range of exciting sportscars, excelling for over two decades on both road and track.

Possibly one of the most thrilling vehicles we have to offer from WP Ltd. A combination of no driving aids, a flat shift sequential gearbox, open top arrangement, a blisteringly fast engine and arguably the most iconic race livery across the globe!

Powered by a 2000 R1 998cc 4 cylinder engine with original gearbox. Modified with a Linear Rapid Shift position sensor which allows flat shift gearbox changes under load. Staggering acceleration – a sub 3 seconds to 60mph in capable hands. Not for everyday driving but open road use and ideally on track!
