Four years after the presentation of the CTR3, and it's time for Porsche tuning specialist RUF to tweak its mid-engine supercar.

The newest CTR3 continues to use the Porsche 911-derived 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged six-cylinder boxer engine, but thanks to a series of modifications, output has been boosted from 691bhp and 890Nm (657 lb-ft) to 750bhp and 960 Nm (708 lb-ft) of peak torque.
The more powerful CTR3 accelerates from standstill to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.2 seconds and to 125 mph (200 km) in 9.6 seconds, and can reach a top speed of 236 mph (380 km/h).
Power is channeled to the rear wheels through a sequential shift 6-speed transmission and limited slip differential.
The supercar's chassis is a space frame with a modular construction while the company's RUF Integrated Roll Cage protects the passengers. Apart from the doors and the front hood, which are made from aluminum, the rest of the body is made out of Kevlar-carbon composite.
The CTR3 also gets 380 mm brakes with 6-piston calipers all around and a specially designed Bosch ABS, while it rolls on 255/35 ZR19 front and 335/30 ZR20 rear tires.
Pricing of the updated CTR3 has not been announced.
