After being teased for quite some time, RUF’s new CTR3 Clubsport finally made its world debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. Built as an evolution of the standard RUF CTR3, the new Clubsport version features some of the classic 1950s styling cues that were itching to get on a more modern interpretation.

The RUF CTR3 Clubsport has received a carbon fiber treatment on the fenders, door sills, rear deck lid, and the roof mounted air-duct to add a little flair to the already impeccable Cayman tuning package. A functional rigid rear spoiler also provides the car with more stability while driving at high speeds, which is a necessity in a vehicle such as this.

Powering the RUF CTR3 Clubsport is a twin turbocharged 3.8 liter flat six cylinder engine with an output of 750 HP at 7100 rpm and a peak torque of 708 lb-ft at 4000 rpm - that’s an increase of 50 HP over a standard RUF CTR3. The engine is mated to a 6-speed sequential gearbox and can sprint the car up to an impressive top speed of 229 mph.

Seriously, it’s not funny to look at. I guess it’s just the chosen paint on the exterior make it uncomfortable for you guys.

RUF’s addition to its powerful engine enables it to perform a faster run. Despite that, I am hoping that this modification is well-done so it won’t break down once tested.

The fact that its exterior is styled like that reminds me of amusement rides’ quality. However, its performance figure definitely states that it is the real thing.

With RUF’s tuning, this Porsche model has turned into a novelty car. Both are deserving of flatters for the excellent job they’ve produced.

What has RUF done to this Cayman? Despite of the good materials they used, the appearance looks cheap.

I can’t believe it’s made of carbon-fiber materials as it looks heavy. It really helped the Cayman to achieve the top speed of 229 mph I guess.

Beth_logan, I feel the same. I am impressed with the powerful engine and speedy performance. I hope it’s stable and safe too.

Ruf certainly is a tease. From the little details revealed though, we can pretty much trust that they won’t disappoint us with their upcoming releases.

Wow, this extreme. I heard it on news that it has a powerful output 750 HP. The sprinting time is also good at three seconds.

Wow its engine is very spectacular! That speed is really so swift, Porsche has once again given us a new example of powerful innovation.
