253mph RUF is powered by a 691bhp twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre engine

The latest version of German supercar maker RUF's CTR3 appeared in the Michelin Supercar Run at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The mid-engined RUF CTR3 is powered by a heavily modified twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre flat-six engine that produces 691bhp and 657lb ft, which is claimed to allow the RUF to sprint from 0-62mph in 3.1sec and on to a top speed of 235mph.

RUF also makes a 'ClubSport' version of the CTR3, which was launched last year and offered up 750bhp and 708lb ft. The CTR3 ClubSport's top speed is slightly lower than the standard car's, at 229mph, as it's fitted with a different six-speed sequential gearbox.

The ClubSport also features a series of styling changes over the standard CTR3, including a larger fixed rear spoiler, and a bodykit fashioned from carbonfibre designed for extra cooling and improved downforce and aerodynamics.
