RUF Sex

25 Dec

The latest creation from RUF Autocentre Germany.  Amazing machine!  This is not “just” some modded 911/Cayman/Boxster project.  This is it’s own machine, with unique carbon-kevlar chassis and aero that is inspired by Porsche’s current styling trends.  Even has some CGT lines in it too.   Weighing in the low 3000 lbs range, it has a twin turbo, fully OBD2 compliant engine, that makes 700 hp and 656 ft/lbs of torque.  Wee!!!!!  Full sequential 6 speed gearbox and rear wheel drive means this is not for the faint of heart.  Neither is the price, but that’s what you come to expect from Ruf – yours for around $530,000.

I’m a total magazine whore – ask anyone who knows me, and they’ll tell you.  I’ve got thousands of car magazines between home and the shop…it’s a bit insane!  I picked up the latest issue of 911&Porsche World yesterday for some long weekend reading (also got a few other Porsche mag’s too!), and they did a roadtest of a very tasty matte grey example.   Now, I’m not into the whole matte paint thing (too much of a fad), but I wouldn’t kick this lady out of bed for eating crackers!

This is the stuff dreams are made of,  and represents the pinnacle of our hobby.  This is true design and  engineering.  All the aggressiveness of a project car, with the civil nature, fit, finish and awesome fabrication of an OEM supplier.  These are the types of cars that inspire me and my own projects.

Take a look – it’s in German, but it’s still worth watching!
