What’s the only Porsche faster than a RUF? Why, another RUF of course.

The Germany Porsche experts at RUF have just release an even more powerful version of the 911 Turbo-based RT12, the RS12 S. Standard RT12 models range from 530 to 650hp, but this new model takes it a step further with 685hp and and equally insane 649 ft-lbs of torque.

Outside the car gets a few different parts from the standard RT12, including LED lights, a carbon-fiber spoiler, as well as mirrors and wider fenders borrowed from the RUF CTR3.

Inside the cabin gets a complete work-over and comes with a specially designed roll cage.

A set of 19-inch RUF wheels comes with the complete car, as does a set of carbon ceramic brakes. There is also an optional height-adjustable suspension.

RUF says it will offer the RT12 S as either all-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive, which would presumably mean RWD versions would be based on the GT2 and not the Turbo.

The vehicle is currently offered in Europe with sales in the U.S. expected to follow. Pricing in Europe is set at 255,900 Euros (or roughly $400,000 USD).
