RUF unveils third-generation CTR3 supercar


Porsche’s famous tuning firm, RUF, has just unveiled its latest and greatest super car: the CTR3. Featuring an all-new mid-engined layout, galvanized steel body and longer wheel base, the new CTR3 is based on the most recent Cayman.

Mated to a six-speed sequential manual cog swapper, power comes from a twin-turbocharged 3.8L flat-six that’s good for a whopping 740hp, up from last generations 690hp. Each of the snails under the hood are fitted with their own intercoolers. So the results for the 1400kg CTR3 are 0-60 in 3.2 seconds while 0-120 takes only 9.6 seconds with a top speed of 236mph.

Inside sits an integrated roll cage while customers can choose from a variety of interior colors and materials.

RUF has yet to release any pricing and launch dates, but we could expect the RUF CTR3 to demand a high price as the previous generation burned the wallet pretty good at £193,000 or $316,307.
