1998 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 RUF-designed front bumper which included larger air inlets. Based on the Carrera engine, the air-cooled, 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 10 BTR2's were built by the factory in Pfaffenhausen and only three of those were produced in right hand drive form.
This particular BTR2 is a very rare (one of only three built by RUF), UK-registered, right hand drive example finished in Arctic Silver with a Charcoal leather interior and was first registered in the UK in May 1998. Like all 'W09' RUF's this car was originally supplied by the RUF factory in Pfaffenhausen and built to the owner's exact specification which included the addition of an Integrated Roll Cage (IRC).
Since then the car has covered a total of 72,000 miles with one owner and has about the most comprehensive history file imaginable along with a fastidious log of all work carried out on the car since new. All major servicing has been done by RUF in Pfaffenhausen whilst interim and minor work has been performed by a combination of OPC and Porsche specialist workshops.
