Ruf hasnt been the same since the great RT12, You used to hear about them alot, Know its like there just a whisper. I love Rufs but its a shame they practically vanished, Even there new cars barely get any press.

Sadly yes. I think they have a new modded 911 turbo though.

Yes that's by design. To prevent some weirdo from silently editing older cars with fake data and getting away unnoticed. There used to be this moronic troll couple of years ago....

@Fastestlaps
I can edit those cars which I have added today but not those which have been added earlier.

The V8 I think was too much of a gamble for them. Porsche haven't moved to V8 configuration like RUF were hoping, and, after all, I can imagine that most Porsche enthusiasts would prefer the flat 6, because that's the original 911 formula.

@Inline 5 rules: You should be able to edit your own cars. See if you have edit icon next to user and notification bell in top-right corner.

I can't find the RGT-8 in the official RUF website.
BTW, it's rear engined not front.

They still making the flatplane V8?

I like the front redesign, looks almost vintage.

Which one would you choose? The RGT-8 or this?

A RUF with a screaming flat 6 engine. More powerful than the GT3 RS.
