Ruf Rt 12 R based on the Porsche 911
At this week’s 2011 Geneva Motor Show, Ruf has reminded us all why its reputation of high-performance, impeccable build quality and plain coolness still rings through. The firm has used the Geneva event to roll out its new Rt 12 R based on the Porsche 911.
Packing a custom twin-turbo system, the modded Porsche puts out a healthy 730 horsepower and 693 pound-feet of torque. All this oomph is sent to all four wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox, though extremists can opt for an optional rear-wheel drive package.
With an overall dry curb weight of 3,295 pounds, the Rt 12 R will hustle to 62 mph in under 4.0 seconds and go all the way to reach a top speed of more than 230 mph.
To make sure things remain safe at such insane speeds, Ruf’s engineers have installed a motorsport-inspired bodykit consisting of carbon fiber front and rear spoilers and sporty side sills. There’s also an adjustable suspension kit, a full roll-cage and forged aluminum wheels measuring 19-inches in diameter and shod with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires.
How much for all this goodness? Ruf quotes approximately $389,454, exclusive of taxes.
