    RUF CTR Anniversary

    I thought these once again looked impossibly cool at the Geneva show. I've reported previously on how unique the car is to drive as well:

    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    I absolutely love those. Any chance you'd consider one?

    So either they disappeared with your cash or the build takes a while? SmileySmiley

    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    Have any cars been delivered to customers by now? Such a project takes a lot of time, effort and resources, actually quite a bit for a small-scale manufacturer as Ruf.

    Nonetheless quite impressive considering that they developed their own mid-engined sports car a couple years ago as well.

    The yellow one on the stand was the first customer car.

    Wow Cray, I can't wait to see the pictures of your Singer and the RUF together! Do you want to tell more about the specs of your CTR?

    I asked for a late build car from the originally announced run of 30 so not at spec stage for a while. Leaning towards orange though. 


    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    The car looks a bit cartoonish but I guess this is actually a plus for it, considering it's price... blush

    That is lovely too. Does not have the CTR "cachet" though.

    That sounds pretty spectacular! (My all time favorite except for maybe a Singer would be an orange RS2.7...) Any idea when the car is planned to be ready for spec and delivery?

    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    What a lovely car Smiley High price, of course.


    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    Styling wise, In always find the RUFs a bit awkward... like their designer is not so good with 3D rendering programs. It seems like RUF has seen the success of Singer and wants to pick some of the grains -understandably. I'm not sure whether the two are complementary, or two of a kind.

    Anyway, congrats to those who have one on order!

    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    While the exterior of the Singer and Ruf may have similarities, they are very different under the skin (the Singer is a 964-era 911 from 1989-1994) and the Ruf is a completely new carbon tub with racecar like pushrod suspension, etc.

    But the air-cooled engine that Singer has designed with Williams F1 is beyond awesome.  Would be interesting to see a marriage of Ruf carbon chassis with Singer/Williams air-cooled 4-valve >9,000 rpm engine:

    There really is no comparison between Singer  and the RUF CTR. Completely different ethos between the two. I think of them as complementary.

    I agree and wish I could afford to let them complement each other in my garage Smiley

    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    Would love a Singer but he RUF does nothing for me...


    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    If I had to choose, I'd prefer the Singer, to me the Singer is still a Porsche at heart, and also the craftsmanship is mind blowing. The track car abilities is not at the top of the priorities in these type of cars, for me at least. The character, history, attention to detail, etc is.
