Picked up the R on Saturday, drove it back to Milan from Padova but it was mainly on highway and/or stupid traffic so a bit early to give an honest feedback. I'm in love with the fact I feel much more connected to the car than with the RS. The clutch is a bit light for my taste but the shifter is proper short and the mechanical feel while shifting is sublime. The noise of the single mass flywheel brings back long gone memories of the first GT3 RS, some 12 years ago now! The cabin is now properly noisy...you don't realize it until you make a phone call and you need to shout for other people to hear you! Front end of the car feels more direct and turn in is sharper than the RS. Still running in the engine so can't talk about it but don't expect it to be much different than the RS of course. Really pleased with the spec, great car overall, very happy!

Couple of pictures from one of the local young spotters!

Congrats Maxt.

Beautiful build. Not exactly rear diffuser friendly roads in those photos. Just as well they did not make it out of carbon fibre.

What colour grey are the stripes?

Max hai la targa "prova" ?.. cool.

Cars just look that much better next to old Italian buildings. I'm curious though, did you really suggest gold as a color for powerslidelover's R just so yours could look better? Haha

Yes, unfortunately they couldn't register the car in time and I spend very little time in Italy so managed to get a Test Plate and will drive with that for few days until I get the real plates!

Haha, I think Manu's car actually looks good, it certainly does in person! I thought of it like an homage to the 3.0 RS wearing similar colours back in the 70s!
