This 911 R comes complete with a Slate Grey finish, silver bonnet stripes, and yellow Porsche lettering.

Interestingly enough, due to popular demand, Porsche built this car with the original 6-speed manual transmission. This is done with the drivetrain of a GT3 RS. It also comes with a 500 bhp DOHC horizontally opposed six-cylinder engine with direct injection; in other words, this monster does not shy away from power. In addition to independent front and rear suspension, and the four-wheel carbon-ceramic brakes, this Porsche delivers an exceptionally smooth ride.
