Well, not exactly. First production on the RS2 was stopped in the June or
July 95 timeframe. Second, when it was built, the RS2 could be gotten in 5
standard colors (including the RS-Blau Perleffekt you are talking about), 6
"standard" optional colors, or a color of your choice.

For those who like automatics and looks, the RS2 was available with it, at
extra cost. But this option would also mean a standard S2 engine (230HP) as
opposed to the RS2 engine !

The price for the RS2 was DM 98,900 base, with up to DM 10,000 or so in
extra equipment possible. This is equivalent to about $66,000 once removing
the 15% VAT.
