It does have some useless "upgrades" and those driving aids are on supercars too and the target buyer of the RS isn't 20 year old fan boys but more likely their dads and not everybody is a race car driver so "drift mode" and all those electronic gizmos make it attractive to a larger buyer market that can afford a $40k car. Some will buy this car and not do anything beyond what I can do in my SE which is a crime.
