The dangerous to know, meanwhile, buy the genetically mutated GT3 RS (R1 795 000), which is an insanely fast, super-light, street-racer that will almost certainly creep up to your bedroom in the dead of night and kill you while you sleep.
So, where does the marginally less insane, 300kW GT3 fit in to this? It costs R250 000 less than the Turbo yet it is still astonishingly quick. It is also brilliant fun: its throttle is alive to the slightest input, its engine bursting with torque at any speed and in any gear, and its brakes can give you an instant facelift. Ignore, if you can, the fact that it is as ugly as pigs’ doings; the GT3 perfectly balances the thrill of a track car with the refinement of a road car; the noise is just this side of tolerable, the ride goes easy on the spine and humans can just about control it.
But the steering wheel and gearshifter are not lined with super-absorbent, rough suede for nothing. Unleash the GT3’s potential and the sweat will pour in buckets.
