Porsche unveiled one of its meanest supercar, the CTR3 four years ago. However, it has pretty much been left untouched…..until now. Porsche tuning specialist, RUF has laid its hands on the mid-engine supercar, and the result is not insubstantial.
For a start, the car continues to use the 911 derived 3.8-litre twin turbo flat-six engine. However, power output has gone up from 691bhp (515kW) and 890Nm to 750bhp (560kW) and 960Nm of peak torque.
Power is transferred to the rear wheels via a 6-speed sequential gearbox with limited slip differential. This is enough for the tweaked CTR3 to complete the century sprint (0-100km/h) in just 3.2 seconds. It will reach 200km/h in 9.6 seconds and hit a maximum velocity of 380km/h.
Stopping power comes in the form of 380mm brakes with 6-piston callipers all round and a bespoke BOSCH ABS system. The car wears 255/35 ZR19 front and 335/30 ZR20 rear tyres.
The CTR3 sits on a space frame chassis with modular construction. The entire car is made out of Kevlar-carbon composite materials, except the doors and front bonnet. RUF has also fitted the car with the company’s Integrated Roll Cage to protect the passengers.
