Twice the mass and half the power. This is a hotted-up street car, which does care about aesthetics, so naturally it looks decent, but not as nice as the slower, street version. If anything, it reinforces the point that aesthetics and function are usually opposing goals.

although it looks similar to a street car 911 the RSR is completely different. yea its not a formula 1 car but i wouldn't say it sacrifices function for aesthetics. it also complies to a completely different set of regulations then F1

Ha ha. I lived in Colorado for 2 years and I felt like I couldn't throw a rock without hitting a full Kashima Yeti.

Not likely. The chainring and the rotors have coloured vinyl on them so I'd bet the coil is done in the same.
