I just have to say that the Ruf times are handicapped by the custom 20 inch Pirelli Rosso tires that are far from the best grip for a car of this caliber. Now that the ZR1 has come out with a 335/25ZR20 PS2 I have finally been able to transform my RT12 into a time attack machine that could easily best the GT2 RS time with my AWD exit speed.

At the 2007 Michelin tuner day an RT12 recorded 210.7 MPH on the bowl at Clermont-ferrand test track. It also did 40-250 KPH(25-155 mph) in 15.63 secs. For comparison, a 1000 BHP twin engined Audi TT took 15.08 secs and an EDO Competition Maserati MC12 Corsa, 14.85 secs. The Michelin Supersport test drivers who tried the ruf said there wasnt anyway they could think of improving the package. Shows that these RUFs are NOT tuner specials but ground up proper cars from a proper manufacturer...

i wouldnt expect it to be that quick at the very least half a second slower because of the sections where that space in between two corners isnt nearly long enough. coming out of the first corner even a gt-r will reach a higher peak speed before chicago. its apex speed would also be lower through the follow through it would need to be past the tire wall to get significantly faster. anyways who would trust jeremy clarkson with an overpowered porsche :) imagine him in a yellowbird lol. spin out, get frustrated, burn it, tnt whatever ends it. he has actually done that to a same generation carrera.

I bet this could do a 1:18.2 at the Top Gear Track, speaking of that, why doesnt Top Gear test Ruf's on the Show, the old 90's TG tested them, but not this one, anyone know why?

Georg why do you even bother to reply to Ryo's idiotic comments?

Ryo Ruf recive chassies without manufactor code from Porsche, RUF has a own manufactor code and are independent car producer by US and German law since the 1980´s. Over 60% of the parts used in a RUF "911" are not from Porsche

Ryo  10y ago

the RUF RT12 is a porsche 911 GT2 turbo because it looks the same if anyone wants to see it go to www.google.com trust me its the same and the spoiler the bumper but different colour

sportauto test the RUF RT12 in the 2/2008 edition... at sportauto online they claimed the car finished in the top5 of all time sportauto supertest... reaching with 308km/h the second highest topspeed during a supertest at the Nürburgring northloop lap.

Ruf is a independent car producer by US and German law.. they recive chassies from Porsche without any numbers and use own manufatcor numbers.. the RT12 use 60% parts from Porsche the rest is completley Ruf build..but from that 60% over 90% get a rework... amazing fact.. Ruf offered a Turbo version of the 997 befor Porsche did..

RUF CTR3 at least looks like it's no Porsche (apart from front and rear light clusters). The Body is 100% RUF design but the engine is twin KKK turbocharged Porsche 3.8.

why is the max speed away? It is 360km/h. If I klick on sorted list the RUF RT12 is in the ranking with the 360km/h..confusing
