Boah, ey! The Opel Manta, the only real with the Fox tail on the antenna, and of course, deep-laid, has a lot of things behind. Since the beginning of the 90s, Til Schweiger, Tina Ruland in the hit movie “Manta Manta”, the number of loose Mana-jokes (the shortest: “a Manta in front of the University”) as a fast-paced game movie brought to the big screen, it was done to the Image of the car completely.
