Introduction to RUF CTR3

The famous Porsche refurbisher RUF officially released the CTR3 super sports car in 2007, which was produced at the new plant in Bahrain. The RUF CTR3 is not based on the Porsche Cayman, but is a new body developed by itself. The body uses three different materials, high strength steel, aluminum alloy and carbon fiber. The sturdy A-pillar and birdcage frame structure not only enhances the torsional stiffness of the body but also provides excellent tumbling protection. Previously, CTR3 was misunderstood as sharing the chassis with Cayman, perhaps because of the rear-wheel drive layout of the mid-engine and the Cayman taillights. The front suspension of the RUF CTR3 is equipped with a McPherson-type anti-roll bar and the rear suspension is equipped with a multi-link anti-roll bar. In order to cope with the powerful power output, the brake system is also very powerful, using six-piston light alloy brake calipers and 15-inch ventilated ceramic brake discs. Because the power is too powerful and is driven by the rear wheels, the front and rear wheels vary widely in size, with 255/35 ZR 19 and 335/30 ZR 20 high performance tires. The RUF CTR3 super sports car lists the Ferrari Enzo, Carrera GT and SLR McLaren as imaginary enemies. A fast-moving Bugatti Veyron SuperSport can easily accelerate to 300km/h. Maybe CTR3 will not be far away, but then A few corners, such as the Tiger CTR3, will disappear like a ghost in the vision of Weihang.
