Porsche tuning house RUF has unveiled the third-generation version of its CTR supercar.
The new CTR 3 features a raft of changes compared with the outgoing model, chief among which includes an all-new mid-engined layout, galvanised steel body and a longer wheelbase for “better driving stability at high speeds,” according to the firm.
Power for the twin-turbocharged 3.8-litre flat-six cylinder engine has been increased from 690bhp to a heady 740bhp at 7100rpm, which is transferred to the road via a transversely mounted six-speed sequential gearbox.
Each of the turbos are fitted with their own intercoolers, positioned just in front of each 20-inch rear wheel. The front wheels are slightly smaller at 19 inches.
The new 1400kg CTR matches the previous generation car’s 0-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds, while 0-120mph takes just 9.6sec. The car will then continue on to a top speed of 236mph.
Confirming the car’s position as an out and out racer, it features an integrated roll cage, while the body is constructed of both a space-frame and modular tubular frame.
On the inside, customers will be able to spec a range of different interiors, from stripped-out racecar to sumptuous Alcantara and leather-clad supercar.
RUF hasn’t given any indication on pricing, but expect a substantial price hike on the previous version’s £193,000 price tag.
