1 of 30 Ruf CTR3 up for grabs in Luxembourg

One of the most iconic tuned sports cars – the Ruf CTR3 – is on sale in Luxembourg with no mileage, availability conditions or asking price mentioned. We have no doubt it will be a quick sell, though.

One of the most iconic tuned sports cars – the Ruf CTR3 – is on sale in Luxembourg with no mileage, availability conditions or asking price mentioned. We have no doubt it will be a quick sell, though.

German tuner Ruf came out with the original CTR3 back in 2007, having taken the petite Porsche Cayman as the starting point. Make no mistake, however – very little of the original car remains, as everything from the bodywork to the chassis has been replaced (the latter produced by Canadian company Multimatic). Only 30 units were made, and this one was the eighth.

Papers say the car left the garage in 2010 packing a 3.7-liter twin-turbo flat-six capable of 700 PS (690 hp / 515 kW) and 889 Nm (656 lb-ft) of torque. Three years later, its owner brought it back to the tuner for an upgrade to the Club Sport specification with 775 PS (764 hp / 570 kW) and 980 Nm (723 lb-ft).

There is plenty that can be said about this one-of-a-kind project, so we are just going to mention a few more highlights. These include an exhaust system encased in zirconium alloy, a dry sump wrapped in leaf gold, a titanium manifold, NACA air vents in the engine lid, and a clutch borrowed from a 911 (997) GT2.

Silver five-spoke wheels clad in low-profile tires look great against a plain black body and allow a sneak peek at yellow brake calipers. The diffuser, the rear wing and the side mirrors flaunt an exposed carbon fiber look.

The largest highlight inside comes in the form of carbon-backed seats wrapped in leather and artificial suede.
