CTR 3 EVO
CTR 3 EVO
Originally first unveiled to the worlds motoring press in 2007, the CTR 3 is the successor to the much fabled CTR and CTR 2 from previous generations.
The next evolution of CTR 3 is here with the debut of the CTR3 Evo. The CTR3 has always been about pushing the bleeding edge of design and performance, and this is no exception. Now with a robust 800 horsepower, the CTR3 Evo represents the pinnacle of our water-cooled engines and is the most powerful RUF ever created. The RUF CTR3 Evo turns up the heat on an iconic design with a low, wide front-end and characteristically curved front fenders that allow the driver to place the front wheels easily. The driving position is reminiscent of sports prototypes of the past, with power and handling very much of the modern age. Its twin-turbocharged and intercooled 3.8-liter flat-six produces 800 horsepower at 7,100 RPM and 730 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM.
"The CTR3 is a car you instinctively trust. It makes fast easy in the same way that a Boxster or Cayman does, stripping away the cause-and-effect concerns that would haunt the nine-tenths 911 pilot. It’s gun-it-and-go raised to a supernatural level. Momentum and mass seem perfectly synchronised, the car’s potential feels uncannily accessible; there’s a tremendous sense of precision and immediacy in everything is does and a wonderful, exploitable balance.
Bottom line. The CTR3 is comfortably the finest Ruf to date. It’s also by far and away the best 911 Porsche never made." - EVO MAGAZINE (UK)
The RUF-designed engine is bristling with tech to ensure a smooth and powerful pull to redline under any circumstances, including variable cam timing and lift, direct fuel injection and dry-sump lubrication. The double-clutch 7-speed gearbox receives commands from the shift paddles. Six-piston brake calipers with 15-inch carbon-ceramic rotors front and rear ensure all 800 horses are reined in effortlessly. The steel chassis utilizes our Integrated Roll Cage inside a lightweight carbon-composite body shell for maximum strength and lightness. A rear wing ensures ample downforce at its top speed of 236 MPH. The RUF CTR3 Evo takes our iconic supercar to the next level, with a striking design and performance figures rivaling the best modern supercars.
