1995 RUF BTR2
Shortly after the introduction of the 993 Carrera in 1994, RUF Automobile GmbH introduced the 993-based BTR2, with a 3.6 litre turbocharged engine, fixed rear spoiler plus a distinctive RUF-designed front bumper which included two extra air inlets. Based on the Carrera engine, the air-cooled, K27 turbocharged RUF powerplant generated 420 hp at only 5000 rpm and a maximum torque of 425 lb/ft was available at 4800 rpm.
The BTR2 took on the mantle of the original 964-based BTR (Gruppe B Turbo Ruf) which had been produced between 1983 and 1989. In total no more than 18 BTR2's were built by the factory in Pfaffenhausen and only three of those were produced in right hand drive form.
The BTR2 was based on a 993 Carrera 2 bodyshell in white supplied by Porsche and RUF went about building a turbocharged 993 before Porsche launched their own official Turbo model in 1995. As a point of interest the BTR2 produced 420hp while the Porsche 911 Turbo lagged behind at 402hp. In addition, since the BTR2 was based on a C2 bodyshell it carried less weight than the 911 Turbo so another tick in the box for the RUF.
Manufactured in 1995, this particular BTR2 (car no.6) is a very rare, UK-registered, right hand drive example (one of only three built by RUF) finished in Aventurine Green with a Silver Grey leather interior and was imported and registered in the UK in November 2015. Like all 'W09' RUF's this car was originally supplied by the RUF factory in Pfaffenhausen and built to the owner's exact specification.
The car has covered a total of 48,000 kilometres (30,000 miles) and comes with a comprehensive history file that tracks the car's life from its delivery to its first owner in Singapore up to the present day.
During the past 12 months the car has undergone a major restoration of its bodywork which included a glass-out, bare-metal re-spray in its original factory-painted Aventurine Green plus a mechanical re-commissioning which included a major service and fresh MOT. The car is therefore now ready for its new owner to drive and enjoy immediately.
