The Ruf CTR3 is very rare - a very well preserved right hand drive example is now for sale at Art & Revs.
Ruf presented the CTR3 in 2007 at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The car consists of the front part of a Porsche 911 of the 997 series, a Ruf monocoque as the middle part and a tubular frame designed by Ruf in the rear. The body consists entirely of a carbon-kevlar structure and the engine is based on the unit from the 997 GT2. While the 3.6-liter six-cylinder boxer in the 997 GT2 delivers 530 hp, it is 775 hp in the 1,400-kilogram Ruf CTR3. The driver does the switching work via a sequential six-speed racing gearbox. With a top speed of 380 km/h, the CTR3 is still one of the fastest road cars. By the way, CTR stands for "Group C Turbo Ruf". A Ruf-updated CTR3 is now on sale at Luxembourg specialists Art & Revs.
