Details: The RUF RtR Narrow

The idea behind the 218 mph Ruf turbo Rennsport (RtR) is to build a Turbo-Coupé, which fulfills all needs of an enthusiastic sports car driver.

The RtR projects its 802bhp via an all-wheel drive system, deployed onto the road by ultra-wide 255mm (front) and 325mm (rear) tires. At high speeds, increased downforce comes from the motorsport-derived rear spoiler, while braking is attained by carbon ceramic discs, measuring 410mm front and 390mm rear, with six-piston calipers on the front discs and four-piston calipers acting on the rear. The powertrain is a well-proven 3.8-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder unit, featuring a dry sump lubrication system with external oil tank.
