Both "Manta, Manta" as well as "Manta - Der Film (1991)" were cash-ins on the then-popular "Opel Manta"-jokes. See more »
When Berti drives a race against a VW Golf, both drivers pull the handbrake and press the pedal to burn some rubber. This is not possible, because the Opel Manta is a rear wheel driven model, and the handbrake also brakes the rear wheels. See more »
This is the ultimate film for a true carlover. Though lots of people might disagree on this point with me. Yes it's a german flick, but hey what the heck, it doesn't even matter if you understand anything said in this film, the racing is just so cool. It is a compilation of true oldschool streetracing. Sure the plot ain't all that, it's just all about the cars, which are simply affordable for most people and that makes it all the more interesting! I've seen enough fancy films with unaffordable monstercars, Manta Manta is just the real thing.
I'll have to agree with some people on this forum that this movie is probably the MOST interesting for german or Dutch people.
if you ever get the opportunity to get your hands on this film, be sure not to miss it. Just give it a try and you'll be surprised!
