The Courier-Mail - Motoring - - Inside Line -

Imag­ine park­ing this at the sta­tion. The Praga R1R Su­pers­port, a road-go­ing ver­sion of the Czech-built R1 race car, is 100 per cent street le­gal. Only 68 ex­am­ples will be made. Weigh­ing just 670kg and pow­ered by a 290kW 2.0-litre turbo, the R1R blasts from 0-100km/h in un­der 3.0 sec­onds. In the US, the toll of child deaths in locked cars has reached 27 this year. In Texas, the fa­ther of a six-month-old told po­lice he for­got to drop his son at day­care and found him dead in the SUV when he re­turned from work. The tally is al­most dou­ble the 2015 to­tal.
