2007 RUF RGT based on Porsche 997


(from RUF)  The RUF RGT has been 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 (327 kW) is reached at 7,600 rpm.

Zero to 62 mph (100 kph) takes just a scant 4.2 seconds, zero to 125 mph (200 kph) just 13.5 seconds. The top speed is 197 mph (315 kph).

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.

The standard RGT Coupé 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.
