RUF Automobile announced the launch of the new SCR at the 88th Geneva International Motor Show in 2018.
The SCR features a RUF-designed full carbon-fibre bodyshell reinforced with an Integrated Roll cage (IRC) plus monocoque chassis and is powered by a 4.0 litre normally-aspirated, six-cylinder boxer engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
The new car weighs in at only 1250 Kgs and the focus has been to create a performance-orientated car that can easily achieve 200 mph whilst combining superb road-holding and grip with its front and rear pushrod suspension for those seeking the ultimate in driving thrills and satisfaction.
The new SCR is a result of two years of the company developing the original prototype which was shown at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show where the Blood Orange car received a significant level of interest from potential buyers who were seeking a powerful, capable, normally-aspirated sports car.
The new SCR also celebrates the 40th anniversary of the original SCR (aka 'Sports Carrera Ruf') which set the motoring world alight in 1978 by raising the bar for road-going, high-performance sports cars of the day with its 3.2 litre, 217 hp boxer engine. Design cues in the new SCR such as the large front spoiler with round brake-cooling ducts and integral oil cooler pay homage to the original ground-breaking car.
