Alois Ruf is a special kind of man. He has the ability to take a perfectly good German sports car, tear it apart, build it back up and then sell it with his name on it. His latest creation is the RUF Rt 12 S. By making the Porsche 911 better in every respect, this super tuned rear engine sports car becomes a true super car competitor. The twin turbocharged flat six has been massaged to make 685 HP and 650 lb-ft of torque. Standard equipment for the Rt 12 is roll cage integrated into the ceiling and wrapped with the same fabric as the interior. Not only is the an added safety device, but a machine with this much additional power requires further reinforcement to the chassis, something the luxury jungle gym provides.
The Ruf receives a few function exterior touches like the carbon rear wing and larger air ducts complimented by the widened rear fenders. The Rt 12 also gets the side mirrors from the RUF CTR 3. The Ruf rides on the signature five spoke forged 19 inch light weight alloy wheels with a high performance ceramic brake system underneath. This feature is very convenient when traveling at the 224 MPH top speed.
The Ruf Rt 12 S is also available with convenience features like a 50 mm hydraulic lift for the front axle to tackle any parking ramp that might stand in your way. However this much Porsche comes at a price, the Rt 12 S is available in either rear or four wheel drive versions and cost about $350,000.
