      Usually Car and Driver is pretty boring but this specialty file caught me by surprise.

      Take a brand new Turbo S from the showroom and transform it into something both ridiculous and wonderful.







      Quite a boatload of money but you get one monster of a 911!

      $399,000 for a built-up 911 with an automatic transmission?

      I wish Champion was. The idea of the "RSR" badge being on a car with only 2 pedals is kinda... well... cheesy.

      If an RSR is a race car two pedals making for a faster car makes sense.

      Even real RSRs only use the third pedal to get moving. After that, paddle shift baby. I'd argue the PDK is closer to the experience of driving a paddle-shifted real RSR anyway.
