Maybe I will source unbranded tow straps in red. The trangular metal bracket on those would put the strap neatly through the hole left by the deleted metal tube.

Speaking of lightness, the R is 32 kilos lighter than the regular model.
On first impression that seems not a lot but on a second look it is close to 3% and the context is road legal R version of an already very light car.
Small wonder they added the (albeit very modest) wing to keep it down on the road.
