    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    RUF's new chassis and pushrods is a good marketing item to get away with the same customer as Singer....  

    Both cars are amazing and attracts different customers.  

    Love the RUF but its much bigger sized car isn't my cup of tea...... 

     


    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    Thanks so much for those details, wasn't aware of that! Can't wait till these cars start landing with the customers... kiss

    Or seen it - it's about the size of an old 911.

    That is true, really interested in seeing what such a chassis can do for a "911".

    No they do 997 derived engines as well. The cars are importable to the USA.

    Thanks, great video! I really like the personal approach in that video. Mr. Ruf and his son have been true gentlemen, whenever I met them.

    A really great YouTube/podcast series, I came across this week: Alte Schule. It is only in German so far but features some really great personalities, e. g. Hans Metzger, Norbert Singer, Vittorio Strosek, Harm Lagaay and also Alois Ruf.


    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    Funny, I enjoyed lunch with Vittorio Strosek (visited him at his location near Lake Ammer) and Alois Ruf (together with his wife who drove that nice E500 at that time) and I can confirm that they were/are part of a rare bread of gentlemen. Strosek was a little bit too focused on his design work (I am more of a technical guy) but Alois told the best stories about cars, engines and some failures, very interesting. Smiley

    This is going to fit right in next to the Singer.

    I dare suggest maybe a more sporty shade of red could work for it?

    TB993tt: Did I ever mention I owned an original 1988 CTR ?

    No you didn’t? Do tell more. Do you know where it is now ?


    Re: RUF CTR Anniversary

    It was one of the retro fitted ones not the original 36 (was that the number ?) bare shell ones, built for a French guy and I bought from the then Ruf dealer in Paris for I think it was £38K.

    The car had all carbon fibre doors, wings, bonnet it had the full CTR spec everything except the shaved gutters I weighed it at 1226kg with half a tank and I measured it 0-100kph in 3.2s which was pretty fast when you consider the gear changes.

    The problem with the original CTR is that they used a new MAP sensor type engine control which was good for making the 470hp but was not great at lower engine speeds so the motor would hunt and throb quite a bit and used a lot of juice, it was not really something you could daily drive. I think I sold it through a London dealer for about what I paid one of my great car clangers along with my £210K sale of my Carrera GT indecision
