The tuners at RUF have revealed a third installment of the Porsche CTR 3 with several upgrades from the previous two models dating back to 2007. This new CTR 3 version features a longer wheelbase than the other two, allowing it to hold a new mid-engine with the new body made from galvanized steel. Found in the engine bay is a 3.8-liter twin-turbo boxer powerplant producing 50 PS more than the previous Porsche tuning. A newly designed gearbox for the CTR is transversely mounted, and sends all 750 PS and 960 Nm of torque to the wheels.
RUF is a well known tuning company, having over 30 years of experience with these boxer engines. With this knowledge, they have been able to fit each turbocharger with its own individual intercooler at the front of each rear wheel. The Porsche CTR 3 can now sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds, reach 200 km/h in 9.6 seconds, and accomplish an overall top speed of 380 km/h.
While constructing the RUF CTR 3, engineers used both a space-frame and modular tubular frame. A RUF Integrated Roll Cage was also installed for added protection and track requirements. Styling improvements include the new forged aluminum rims measuring 19×8.5 up front, and 20×12.5 at the rear. These come wrapped in high performance tires sized 255/35/ZR19 at the front, and 335/30/ZR20 at the rear. Inside the Porsche CTR 3 are some subtle modifications including Alcantara leather finishes, aluminum gear shifter, and a new speedometer topping 400 km/h.
