Indeed they are beautiful in the flesh, and a lot of man-hours put into each one. There's some interesting vids on the production of these on youtube

They were a few quid shy of £187,000, lets face it they're not 'that' special. It's only the colour that really distinguishes them, the BHP has been upped a bit and they have a carbon roof and bonnet but other than that it's a Gold Turbo S. In fact the performance figures are virtually identical to the std S.

Like all these 'special' cars people buy them thinking they can sell them and pay off the mortgage, they won't.

TBH I hate the colour, you'd look like a member of the Qatari Royal family driving round Knights bridge!
On the same vein as this a club member got a drive of a GT 2 RS recently and said the steering was terrible, lacked any feel and feed back and he has driven dozens of 911's.

mmmm I think there are a lot more custom parts to them than that eg the bespoke carbon parts have gold thread interleaved, very very minute detail but bespoke on an already bespoke part.

Its like everything with luxury, exclusivity comes at a price and its a law of diminishing returns ie the cost of that little bit extra is exponentially more. This car is the perfect example and is a halo model of luxury just as the RS is the halo model of performance. It is what it is and a part of what makes the Porsche brand what it is.

There will always be those that don;t see the point but they are not the target audience and subjectively all porsches benefit from this type of halo marketing.

Maybe so but they ain't worth £350 k no matter how much 'bling' you put on them.
Interweaved with gold thread, give me a break!
