1997 RUF CTR2

RUF Automobile is delighted to offer for sale on behalf of the current owner this beautiful, left hand drive, genuine ‘W09’ VIN RUF CTR2.

Afficionados of RUF will know that the company is in a unique position to source body shells directly from Porsche and then create its own individual interpretation of a highly capable sports car. All RUF-manufactured cars come with a VIN that starts ‘W09’ since the company is recognised as a manufacturer in its own right by the German authorities.

The CTR2 is the evolution of the legendary CTR ‘Yellow Bird’ and only sixteen RUF CTR 2 models were built between 1995 and 1997. The CTR moniker is derived from ‘Group C, Turbo, Ruf’. The 3.6 litre powerplant in the CTR2 is actually based on the engine used in the Porsche 962 Le Mans Group C car

Capable of sprinting from zero to 60 mph in under 3.5 seconds and hitting a top speed in excess of 220 MPH (354 km/h), the CTR2 was one of the fastest production supercars in the world, capable of out-running Ferrari’s F50 (193 mph), Jaguar’s XJ220 (213 mph), and performing on par with Nissan’s R390 GT1 (220 mph).

The one million dollar McLaren F1 was the only other production car at the time which was later found to have performed better under testing, by 1998, making the RUF CTR2 the second fastest production car of the day.  (more…)
