Monte’s Factory Lightweights Part Three: The CS

From Monte’s Factory Lightweights photoshoot

Monte W. Factory Lightweights Part 1:

The Taj Mahal is considered to be one of the most beautiful structures in the world. While being slightly lesser known, Monte W’s Garage Mahal is just as awe inspiring to those of us who are in love with all things automotive. Hidden away deep within California’s Central Coast, the Garage Mahal has a little something for everyone. 

When the opportunity to shoot Monte’s F360 Challenge Stradale along with his 911 GT3 RS presented itself, I thought it would be a great chance to explore the similarities and differences between these stunning cars. 

Both of these cars are examples of the same potent engineering idea; strip out comfort features to save weight while at the same time bumping up power and torque. You are left with a pair of cars that are designed to reward their owners on the race track. As demonstrated by our short ride between the two locations, both of these cars are able to shorten the distance between corners. 

Thanks again Monte. 

Watch this space for separate features on both cars.
