Ruf R Turbo

Ruf R Turbo

The Porsche 911 is often considered to be at the German automaker's zenith of power and engineering design. However, based on the same sportscar is an even faster, stronger and stylish car, the Ruf R Turbo, manufactured in a tiny facility in Pfaffenhausen, Germany. The Ruf cars have been designed by Alois (Louis) Ruf for nearly 3 decades now, since 1987, and have been world-beaters at speed. Priced at a hefty $216,880, this racecar-turned-roadcar is offered in 520hp, 550 hp and 590 hp variants.

                            Ruf R Turbo is available intermittently through successive decades under its private Brand name.

Interior

Ergonomic refinement and sportiness further defines the interiors of the Ruf R Turbo which arrives either as a 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive. The latter has a stability control program which the former sacrifices to become an all-in-all driver's car. The interiors, like the exteriors, belong to the 911 with suitable modifications. A chrome-moly rollcage is a standard safety feature and it runs along the roofline from A to C pillar, with overhead cross-bracing. That makes the whole cabin stiffer and stronger though it does not affect the looks. This is because the roll cage is wonderfully integrated into the cabin through welding and intelligent upholstery. These apart, the car has all the standard Porsche-performance features - Porsche Traction Management (PTM), Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), Porsche Stability Management (PSM) and Porsche Communication Management (PCM) which functions via GPS.

 

Exterior

The basic structure of the sports car belongs to the famous and popular Porsche 911 series and the super structure consists of several subtle modifications. Though the Ruf offers the advantageous feature of personalization, but the general characteristics include a leaner and meaner body to allow greater acceleration and speed. The front and rear are of the same width arriving with Turbo fenders and an air dam in front. Openings have been cut on the rear fenders to provide air for the rear engine while a rear valance panel with vents has been fitted for exiting air. Stiffer anti-roll bars and coil-over shocks imply that the Ruf squats an inch lower than the 911 GT2. The rest of the body is more or less like the 911 with sire air-intake grilles, twin-spoke aluminum wheels, tipped dual exhausts, an elegant yet effective rear spoiler, LED til lamps and powerful headlamps.
