Ruf RGT

The RUF RGT has as base the 1973 Carrera RS, a model powered by a revving normally aspirated engine. Under the hood it hides a 3.8-liter engine capable of developing 445 horsepower. This output enables the car to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds and to reach a top speed of 197 mph. The standard RGT Coupe is equipped with an integrated roll cage which is covered almost entirely by the Alcantara of the A, B and C pillar. The crossbar can be demounted.

The RUF RGT was inspired by the legendary 1973 Carrera RS. The high revving normally aspirated engine is based on the crankcase of the original 911-engine. It is equipped with dry-sump lubrication with a separate oil tank to ensure a reliable oil supply for the engine even at high cornering speeds. The 3.8 litre engine has a high compression ratio of 12.0:1. The output of 445 hp is reached at 7600 rpm.

Zero to 60 mph takes just a scant 4.1 seconds, zero to 125 mph just 13.5 seconds. The top speed is 197 mph.

The RGT engine captivates by its spontaneous response behaviour and its distinct revving ability. The RGT will be delivered in rear-wheel-drive and 6 speed transmission with limited slip differential and short shift kit serially. The sport suspension is adjusted for road traffic as well as for track use by the help of especially adjusted Bilstein gas shock absorbers and chassis springs.
