New RUF CTR!



Quote :
"The new CTR certainly sounds impressive. At its core is a carbon fiber monocoque structure, which is a RUF job. Attached to the monocoque are steel crash structures front and rear. The lightweight chassis allows the finished car to have a dry weight of 2,640 pounds – what the more commonly understood curb weight will be isn't clear. Unlike the CTR3, RUF claims the '17 CTR will be a rear-engine layout.

That engine is a 3.6-liter Porsche-derived flat-six, twin-turbocharged and making 700 horsepower and 649 pound-feet of torque. It is rear-drive only and exclusively uses a six-speed manual transmission. Its performance is suitably impressive: It takes 3.5 seconds for the CTR to hit 62 mph, and 9 seconds to hit 125 mph. Its top speed is 225 mph. Handling is provided by double-wishbone control arms actuating pushrod shock absorbers. The front brakes are six-piston fixed calipers; the rear are four-piston units.

The interior has its priorities straight for a low-production special aimed at true believers. It's explicitly analog and minimalist, and also lightweight. There's a lot of Alcantara and carbon fiber for weight savings, RUF says, and analog dial-type gauges for a classic look."


A 911 lover's dream.

I love how thin that A pillar looks. Very sleek. Not like today's cars that remind me of Ricky Lake's arms when she was 200lbs.

I am surprised they designed a car from the ground up but didn't make their own unique body.

That does look amazing, however, and should have great performance.

^^You're right, because RUF should make something almost identical to what Porsche currently makes, because that makes sense...

maybe I should have just said, some people are never happy.

And I wish this was 1983 weight. It's considerably heavier than the original Yellow Bird.

I take it all back! It's a proper sequential 6spd!

Did I miss something? They didn't show the new CTR (Yellowbird 2.0), and both of those cars appeared to have a conventional manual gearbox.

Oops, my mistake.

I'm not convinced that it's a dual clutch sequential like PDK, though. I could be wrong, though.

In any case...different car from the top of the page.

^^ he says sequential, but when he is driving it (around 11-12 minutes), you can see him shifting a few times, and it seems like a manual to me?

Right, and it doesn't sound like a dual clutch to me.

It's possible that it's a sequential like a motorcycle transmission, where you still manually do everything...it's just not an H-pattern box.
