RUF upgrades the CTR 3

RUF has unveiled its third incarnation of the CTR 3 model. Where as its predecessors had their engines sitting in the rear of the car, the new CTR 3 has a mid-engined configuration, which, when combined with a slightly longer wheelbase, improves handling and high speed stability.

Lurking beneath that kevlar-carbon composite body-shell, there’s a monster powerplant to match the CTR 3’s insane looks. A twin-turbocharged 3.8L flat-six develops 750 HP at 7,100 rpm and 708 ft/lbs at 4,000 rpm, which is enough to return a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 3.2 seconds, 0-200 km/h (125 mph) in 9.6 seconds, and – depending on gear ratios – a top speed of 380 km/h (236 mph).

Weighing in at just 3,086 lbs, and with a power-to-weight ratio of only 4.4 lbs per HP, the CTR 3 needed some serious stopping power – and it received it. 380 mm cross drilled ceramic composite discs are gripped by 6-piston alloy calipers – all round. Bosch supplied a specially designed anti-lock system.
