To celebrate 40 years of the 911 Turbo (and to charge $17,112 more than on a standard Turbo S), Porsche will build forty 911 Turbo S Exclusive GB Editions with contrasting black everything and a Union Jack embossed on the centre storage compartment lid.

As we all know, nobody is going to buy a normal 911 Turbo from now on. With the slightly faster Turbo S around, the non-S Turbo simply doesn't make any sense at that price range.

That means there will be way too many Turbo S badges on the street, destroying the illusion that you got something exclusive for your $182,700+. Porsche is aware of the problem, and came up with a solution, as far as you live in the UK.

The 911 Turbo S Exclusive GB Edition was created by Porsche's Exclusive division, and what makes it exclusive is that you can only get it in white, silver or red, while all forty will come with Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control, the Sport Chrono Package Plus with dynamic engine mounts, plus ceramic brakes.

Outside, there's a new rear upper spoiler, Sport Classic wheels and the 'Porsche' script along the sills, all finished in black just like the door handles.

Inside, the black theme continues with Guards Red contrasting stitching the embossed Union flag. The steering wheel also got a red centre marking, because race car of course. The rest is carbon fiber + more red stuff, but the illuminated '911 Turbo S – Exclusive GB Edition' lettering on the carbon door sill guards is what really sets the mood in this car.

For their $257,094, those lucky British buyers also get a personalised indoor car cover, a unique photo book about the car's building process and key pouch in leather with - guess what - red stitching.

Okay, this is starting to really bug me: can we please stop with the direct pound/euro/dollar conversions? They are utterly meaningless, and just serve to seed the comments with endless, 'Wha, so expensive!' posts. The direct conversion says absolutely nothing at all about how much the car would cost in the currency it's been converted into.

Make no mistake, this car is crazy expensive regardless, but it's an issue on articles about everything from this Porsche to, say, an Audi S1. The price in pounds or euros, converted, has absolutely nothing to do with how much the car would cost in dollars, if it were actually sold in the US.
