(from RUF Press
Release) The RUF R Kompressor is the
latest RUF creation. The body styling of the RUF R Kompressor merges
the aesthetics of a plain and discreet line with pure sportiness.
Whereas the front of the R Kompressor expresses pure dynamics, the
design of the rear is more unobtrusive. The spoiler rear hood and
the rear wing are made of high-quality Kevlar-Carbon.
Aerodynamically optimized RUF side mirrors complete the optical
design of the R Kompressor.
The interior is conservative - as it is usual for RUF vehicles. The
RUF instruments with green scaling make the classic flair. Even in
fast driven turns the RUF bucket seats offer very good side support.
The RUF sport steering wheel, the RUF gear knob, the RUF aluminium
pedal set and the foot rest finish the sportive and elegant
Another aesthetic detail are the 19’’ wheels in the classic RUF
style. At the front axle the width of the wheels is 8.5” and they
are equipped with 255/35 ZR 19 Pirelli tyres. 11” wide wheels and
305/30 ZR 19 Pirelli tyres are used at the rear axle. The high
performance RUF brakes are fitted with 4-piston-aluminium-callipers
and 330 mm ventilated and drilled cast iron disks in the front and
330 millimetres and 4-pistons-calipers in the rear.
The RUF 3.8 litre Kompressor engine is a 6 cylinder 24 valve engine
which is equipped with a Kompressor and two water-cooled
intercoolers. This engine offers the best acceleration, good torque
and high top speed. The impressive performance and the powerful
torque constantly present at all engine speeds. The basis of the
supercharged engine is the centrifugal Kompressor with a planetary
gear box. This supercharger works like a mechanic turbo charger
which is operated by a v-belt. The maximum boost is 0.6 bar. The
engine has an aluminium intake manifold which was developed by RUF
with two integrated intercoolers, optimized injection valves, a
lower base compression, sport catalytic converters with greater
performance and a newly adjusted electronic engine management
system. Both integrated water-cooled intercoolers are supported by
an electronic pump with a cooling fluid from the additional water
cooler at the front spoiler.
The 3.8 litre supercharged engine of the RUF R Kompressor achieves
435 hp (320 kW) at 7,000 rpm and has a maximum torque of 347 lb ft
(470 Nm) at 5,000 rpm.
The RUF R Kompressor accelerates in 4.1 seconds from 0 – 62 mph (0 –
100 kph) and 13.5 seconds from 0 – 125 mph (0 – 200 kph). Top speed,
depending on the gear transmission ratio, is 189 mph (302 kph).
The R Kompressor is manufactured at RUF Automobile GmbH in
Pfaffenhausen, Bavaria. The “Manufacturer of high-performance cars”
has been renowned for building the fastest street legal sports cars.
Each RUF vehicle has its own RUF VIN number. All RUF R Kompressor
are handmade – from laying the harness, to fitting the interior, to
mounting the suspension and brake kit to the “wedding” – fitting the
engine-gear-box- unit into the body. Before we deliver a RUF R
Kompressor, we test-drive every vehicle in detail. The result is a
masterpiece – a high performance car “Made in Pfaffenhausen”!
