RUF CTR 3 Supercar Borrows Porsche Parts and Looks

In the world of supercars, oftentimes it’s not good enough to just be fast. You want to whiz by and have people ask, “What the F was that?” And the RUF CTR 3 certainly achieves that.

Earlier reports stating that the CTR 3 was based on the Porsche Cayman were completely unfounded, it seems, although this rocket of a car does make use of the same tail lights. You’ll also notice that its general appearance is very Porsche-esque, with some similarities to the Porsche Carrera GT. But this car can easily hold its own.

Powering the beast is a 3,746cc twin-turbocharged flat six engine, pumping out 700 glorious horses of power and over 656 lbs-ft of torque. According to RUF, this is enough to propel the GT 3 from zero to 62mph in 3.2 seconds before topping out at 235mph. There’s a six-speed sequential manual gearbox, 15-inch brakes on all four corners, 19-inch front wheels, and 20-inchers in the back.

The price might floor you just a bit, though, as the RUF CTR 3 sells for €380,000 plus VAT. That’s over a half-million of the American stuff.
