With 700hp and a mid-engine design, it’s the greatest RUF ever!
While generating 700hp and 657 ft-lbs of torque from a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter boxer engine is incredible, such things are hardly out of the ordinary at RUF. What is amazing, however, is that this car, while looking an awful lot like a Carrera GT, is actually loosely based on a 997 Turbo. Even more amazing is that RUF designed the car with the engine mid-mounted, rather than in its standard rear-mounted position.
The entirely new body of the CTR 3 is made of steel, aluminum and carbon-Kevlar, with aluminum for the doors and carbon-Kevlar for the body shell. This makes for an incredibly light (3,086 lb) vehicle.
The combined low weight and high horsepower help the CTR 3 to accelerate to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds with a run to 124 mph in just 9.6 seconds. RUF claims a top speed of 234 mph!
