1995 RUF CTR2

RUF Automobile is delighted to offer for sale on behalf of the current owner this beautiful, left hand drive, genuine 'W09' VIN RUF CTR2.

Afficionados of RUF will know that the company is in a unique position to source body shells directly from Porsche and then create its own individual interpretation of a highly capable sports car. All RUF-manufactured cars come with a VIN that starts ‘W09’ since the company is recognised as a manufacturer in its own right by the German authorities.

The CTR2 is the evolution of the legendary CTR 'Yellow Bird' and only 31 RUF CTR 2 models were built between 1995 and 1997.

Capable of sprinting from zero to 60 mph in under 3.5 seconds and hitting a top speed in excess of 220 MPH (354 km/h), the CTR2 was one of the fastest production supercars in the world, capable of out-running Ferrari's F50 (193 mph), Jaguar's XJ220 (213 mph), and performing on par with Nissan's R390 GT1 (220 mph).


The one million dollar McLaren F1 was the only other production car at the time which was later found to have performed better under testing, by 1998, making the Ruf CTR2 the 2nd fastest production car of the day.

This particular CTR2 was built in Pfaffenhausen in 1995 and fully overhauled by the RUF factory 2015. This car has completed only 25000 miles and has been meticulously maintained since new. 


This stunning example is finished in Liquid Silver Metallic (Custom RUF Colour) with contrasting full Black leather interior and is currently located in the USA. The current owner welcomes any inspection and can recommend a trained Porsche specialist to inspect the car for a prospective purchaser. The car complies with all UK, European and USA road-legal requirements. 


This CTR 2 is car  number 10 with 580 BHP, originally a European supplied car that was OBDII compliant and USA legal from new. Clear USA title currently in-hand and registered in the USA, the car was air-freight delivered in October 2015 after a nut and bolt refresh in Pfaffenhausen. Full RUF restoration images are available upon request.


Simply put, this CTR 2 wants for nothing and is in the best imaginable cosmetic and mechanical condition possible.
