The manta has become history. It is now a good 50 years since the premiere of the first Manta and thus "over the hill". Many young people shaped his image, especially in the eighties of the last century. Movies were shot with him as the main actor and a category of jokes of their own was created. Probably the most memorable and shortest is: There is a manta in front of the university. You can see that as a pedestal for cult status. Those who have given it their own character traits with wide tires, spoilers and the Fuchsschanz on the antenna can look forward to a reincarnation: the Manta on the charging station.
