Default Launch Vehicle Build code

I recently purchased a Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo, The build sheet has a line indicating that it is a launch vehicle. Does anyone know if there is any benefits in terms of build quality or anything special about the car? It is very nicely optioned with the cosmetic options all blending well so its a good looking car. As for performance options it has almost everything except dynamic chassis. Any insight would be appreciated. The car was purchased new with only 200 miles on it.

My 09 Boxster PDK is a "launch car". It introduced the 2.9L engine and PDK transmission. Each dealer was allotted so many (if any) "launch cars" for the beginning of the 09 model year. They were all Guards Red, PDK, heated and ventilated seats and heated steering wheel. They are all obviously built very early in 2008 at the same time. You could say that the quality might be better because of doing the same build, but also the first build of a new model. The dealer should be able to tell you how many other "clones" you have.
