    Outstanding....here is a question - this Ruf or a Singer????

    Isn't the engine Porsche (or contains Porsche parts)?

    Unexpected but very intelligent move from Allois Ruf, he will sell lots of those.

    Besides the obvious benefits of the 700 bhp, I suspect the carbon fiber monocoque will be the real game changer. SmileySmiley


    Re: The 2017 RUF CTR

    I never was a fan of the designs of RUF; always a bit "crude" and primitive imo.
    Having said that, the early models had a sense of purpose about them which this car shows as well.
    Still, I have a feeling RUF saw the success of Singer and wanted a piece of the action...
    Anyway, all in all a pleasant surprise and I think kind of cool kiss

    Let's be honest here: Now way I would pay 700k for one of those. Sorry.

    I get it why Alois is doing it and it is (maybe) a clever business idea but...sorry...not my thing.

    It is my thing (but can't pay for it), but wouldn't want the turbo motor.  I'd be happier with the new 4.0 GT3 motor put in there.  Maybe Alois will do that next...

    It's a Singer for 40 year old's that grew up watching Sideways Stefan on VHS as opposed to the Singer for 55 year old's watching Hurley Haywood or Jürgen Barth driving an RSR at Daytona or Le Mans.

    Looked great in the flesh. Obviously very well put together, and some nice and innovative details (e.g. Inboard shocks at the rear). I like their custom recreations, but the price is angel

    Re: The 2017 RUF CTR

    I'd take a Singer over this any day, and price doesn't help... These type of cars are not about ultimate performance, not clear why it should have 700hp... If you want fast just get a modern car with PDK, and I won't even talk about safety...


    Re: The 2017 RUF CTR

    I would think it's pretty safe with a carbon monocoque. Certainly innovative for a "911"

    Re: The 2017 RUF CTR

    Does simply skinning the car in CF really make it better/stronger/safer? The properties of CF are not the same as steel or aluminium. While CF is no doubt lighter, it doesn't seem likely they you can just interchange the two. I would think a good CF chassis would actually be designed differently.


    Re: The 2017 RUF CTR

    As far as I know on the first day of Geneva Ruf sold first unit to client from USA for ~700K EUR.


    Re: The 2017 RUF CTR

    They also had the original Yellowbird, CTR2, and CTR3 on the stand kiss

    Interestingly, this engine is wearing a 997GT2/RS intake manifold, quite distinctive and developed as an "expansion" manifold to work at higher boost pressure with the (then) new VTG turbos.... Ruf no doubt will be using non VTG turbos in his usual 996 turbo based Mezger offering. These intake manifolds are flow restricted to 700hp.....

    I saw it today - breathtaking . Not clear to me what it will sound like though and that is important, plus no one other than RUF has driven it yet. . it a nice contrast to the design flair and air cooled nostalgia of Singer. I'm tempted.

    To my knowledge it is more than simply re-skinning in carbon fiber - I think you can see the carbon tub in the transparent  graphic.


    Re: The 2017 RUF CTR

    The "new" yellow bird is undoubtedly cool, but 700K? What can you purchase a vintage CTR for? I think that's the better buy.


    Re: The 2017 RUF CTR

    That would be a great companion to your Singer!

    Nostalgia? Smiley Smiley

    For this kind of money, I would get a Singer (for the Nostalgia Smiley) and a modern sportscar like a Huracan Performante or a 720S, 488 Spider or whatever. 

    Like I said, Alois certainly found a market for this car but it isn't my thing. The RUF CTR3 was pure horror for me. Interesting tech but the design? SmileySmileySmiley If I spend that much money on a car, I want an eye pleaser as well.
