Porsche Rennsport Reunion
05 December 2007 17:00
Forget the tractor. That’s more like it.
Yes indeed. This is what happens when tuners Ruf gets its hands on a new 997 GT3RS: the RUF RGT. You had to look to find them, but the Dallas-based outfit was proudly showcasing its wares at Daytona.
Reading the spec sheet is slightly bewildering, as it’s easy to confuse the standard Porsche equipment with that supplied by Ruf. However, Ruf claims the 1973 Carrera RS was the inspiration behind the project and modifications include more aggressive front and rear bumpers, GT racer-style arches, new three-piece OZ Superleggera19s, a lower ride height and an even more extreme carbon wing. Inside there are new leather-trimmed bucket seats complete with dubious green colour-coding while power is claimed to be 445bhp – a 30bhp hike.See the full Rennsport Reunion write up in the January 2008 issue of CAR, out now
