Milanese craftsman Franco Augello and his shop Sumisura is now renowned for creating beautifully restored and customized BMW motorcycles, but the story really starts when Augello was just six years old.

Over the past 40 years, the Carrera RS has earned a reputation as the greatest dual-purpose Porsche ever produced, the very essence of balanced quickness. In 1973, however, the RS was not certified for importation into the United States. And yet, somehow, four of these cars snuck across the border into the US.
