The Ruf CTR3 is one of the German automaker’s most famous and recognizable models and a particularly stunning example is up for sale in Luxembourg.
Unveiled in 2007, the Ruf CTR3 is related to the Porsche Cayman but shares very little in common with Porsche’s entry-level sports car. In fact, it is built around a bespoke chassis from Canadian company Multimatic. Just 30 examples were built and this is chassis 008.
The listing reveals that this CTR3 was built in 2010 and in 2013, returned to the Ruf factory where it was upgraded to Club Sport specification. As such, the 3.7-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six that ordinarily produced 691 hp and 656 lb-ft (889 Nm) of torque was upgraded to 766 hp and 723 lb-ft (980 Nm).
A number of other upgrades have been made to this Ruf CTR3. For example, it features a Zirconium-coated exhaust, titanium exhaust box, NACA ducts on the engine cover, a dry-sump oil tank coated in gold leaf, Porsche 997 GT3 RSR front control arms and anti-roll bars, Ohlins three-way adjustable dampers, and a 997 911 GT2 motorsport-derived clutch.
Adorning the exterior of the car is a simple shade of black offset with silver five-spoke wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires. The car also features bright yellow brake calipers and carbon fiber across the rear diffuser, rear wing, and wing mirrors.
Found in the cabin are carbon fiber-backed racing seats clad in black leather and Alcantara. The listing doesn’t reveal how many miles it has under its belt nor does it include a price.
