Ruf CTR-3

German based Porsche tuning firm, Ruf Automobile GmbH, has unveiled it's newest creation: the Ruf CTR-3, a supercar contender based on a radically modified Porsche 911 platform.

With body construction of steel, aluminium and Kevlar-carbon, the CTR-3 brooks no argument concerning it's employment of high-end technology to propel it to the top echelon of the supercar hierarchy.

Powered by a modified 3.8-litre, horizontally opposed, 6-cylinder twin-turbocharged engine, Ruf claims outputs of 515 kW at 7 000 r/min and 890 Nm or torque for the CTR-3.

With it's cutting edge bodywork construction only adding up to a total weight of 1 400 kg, the Ruf provides epic performance: 0-100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, and a severe top speed of 375 km/h.

Keeping inline with the purity of the supercar concept, the CTR-3 drives through it's rear wheels only, via a six-speed manual gearbox.

For the extreme enthusiasts only, both in terms of price and performance, the Ruf CTR-3 has a market price of approximately R 3 700 000.
