RUF has introduced a variety of new models at the Geneva Motor Show.
The CTR 3 Clubsport was designed to recall mid-engine Le Mans racers from the 1950s. It features an aggressive body kit, a prominent rear wing and exposed carbon fiber trim.
Power comes from a 3.8-liter engine which develops 750 PS (552 kW / 740 hp) and 960 Nm (708 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed manual transmission which enables the car to hit a top speed of 370 km/h (230 mph).
Moving on, the Rt 35 anniversary edition celebrates the original 1977 RUF Turbo. It is based on the Porsche 911 (991) and has a turbocharged 3.8-liter engine that produces 630 PS (464 kW / 621 hp) and 825 Nm (608 lb-ft) of torque. When connected to a PDK transmission, the model tops out at 330 km/h (205 mph).
Likewise, the RGT 8 is also based on the Porsche 911 but uses a naturally-aspirated 4.5-liter V8 engine with 550 PS (405 kW / 542 hp) and 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque. Connected exclusively to a six-speed manual transmission, the engine allows the car to hit a top speed of 318 km/h (198 mph).
The company also introduced the RXL which is a Porsche Panamera that has been stretched 400mm (15.7 inches). While it looks a little ungainly, it has 22-inch alloy wheels and an upgraded 4.8-liter V8 engine with 420 PS (309 kW / 414 hp) and 520 Nm (383 lb-ft) of torque.
