Ruf has 37 many years of knowledge of turning Porsches into even greater overall performance machines. For the 2014 Geneva Motor Demonstrate, it truly is unveiling the RCT, or Ruf Carrera Turbo, which provides energy to split the distinction in between Porsche’;s 911 Turbo and Turbo S versions.
The RCT begins with a special body kit with a new front air dam and significantly changed rear deck that combines the 2 a little spoiler and air consumption. Electrical power is offered by a twin-turbocharged, 3.8-liter flat-6 with 525 horsepower and 502 pound-feet of torque paired to both a 7-velocity guide or 7-pace dual clutch transmission. That offers the Ruf a 5-hp and 15-lb-ft benefit over Porsche’;s own Turbo but is still much less powerful than the complete Turbo S. The RCT sprints to 62 miles per hour in 3.5 seconds and to a best speed of 196 mph.
Nevertheless, the Ruf’;s large benefit is that it gives purchasers the choice of either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, although Stuttgart’;s turbo designs are only available spinning all 4 wheels. The RCT can also provides upgrades like an integrated roll cage and custom suspension packages, should the buyer be so inclined to splash out on racing kit.

A success story continues
RUF’;s turbocharged autos have a confirmed track record, sustained above 37 many years at the cutting edge of automotive technology and design and style. A milestone model in the RUF sequel is the RUF RCT, initially launched in 1994. The abbreviation “RCT” stands for “RUF Carrera Turbo”. The performance gains accomplished by transforming a normally-aspirated flat-6 power-unit into a large-torque motor through RUF’;s renowned turbo technological innovation were enthusiastically acquired by devotees, clients and media alike. The 2014 RCT pays sincere homage to its heritage. The RUF RCT’;s new, intercooled twin-turbo 3.8-litre engine develops 525 hp (386 kW) @ 6.800 rpm. Greatest torque is 502 lb/ft (680 Nm), arriving @ 2.300 rpm and upward. The RCT’;s rear wing creates optimum downforce in excess of the rear axle to additional augment handling, whilst directing air to the rearmounted intercooler. The RUF RCT coupe can be configured with rear-wheel drive as properly as an all-wheel drive powertrain. RUF’;s vast choices list for the RCT involves the well-known IRC – or Integrated Roll Cage, customized suspension packages, as nicely as an enticing palette of bespoke colors.
