The 2017 RUF CTR is a pretty special machine. Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show 2017, it is the first RUF car engineered and designed by RUF. Both chassis and bodywork were produced in-house, you wouldn’t know that from looking at it though! We took a closer look at this retro-mod Porsche 911!

The 2017 RUF CTR is the fourth generation model and has been designed to pay homage to RUF’s legendary 1987 CTR Yellow Bird. Development has taken 5 years of development on account of the extensive amounts of work required to design such a monster. The 2017 RUF CTR is the first RUF sports car to use a chassis completely of the firm’s own design. The front crash structure is built form steel with an integrated roll cage.

Under the rear hatch sits a twin-turbocharged 3.6 litre flat-six engine generating 710 hp and 880 Nm of torque. The RUF engine uses a dry-sump lubrication system to provide constant oil supply and pressure. Power is routed to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox and a limited slip differential. It manages a 3.5 second zero to 100 km/h sprint time and a 200 km/h in just under 9 seconds.
