The Black Manta is the latest project from Ian King and Car Porn Racing Manila.

After 3 long years of hard work, our friend Ian King and his team over at Car Porn Racing Manila have finally released their passion project at the Manila Auto Salon – The Black Manta.

The project started off as a stock C6 Corvette, but as you can see from the pictures, the final product is something that would come out of a Tim Burton Batman movie.

Looks mean as fuck. The Black Manta was a passion project for Ian King and Car Porn Racing and has been 3 years in the making.

Ian and Car Porn Racing reached out to one of the best automotive graphic designers in the business (Jonsibal) to design the facelift… er.. full widebody redesign of the C6 and over the years the team has been constantly refining the design until they came up with the final product you see in these pictures.

We’ve personally seen the different iterations of the car and it’s definitely come a long way from where it began.

Super wide rear end. Can't wait to see this car in action.

Ian found inspiration for the hood mounts from one of his other projects.

And by “track testing”, Ian’s basically going to hoon the shit out of the car and drift it in every direction known to man.

Congratulations to Ian King and the entire Car Porn Racing family – you guys created a beast!
