The legendary Porsche tuner RUF, who’s been suspiciously quiet recently, showed up at the 2011 Geneva International Motorshow with the new Rt 12 R Porsche 911. Want some figures? 730 bhp, 950 Nm of torque and 370 m/h top speed!
Those numbers alone are enough reason for you to start thinking of ways how to raise 279,000.00 Euro asking price for this beast. Even the rather dull exterior, gold paint job and the pointless stripe won’t be able to put you off.
RUF 911s have always been very interesting, but they’re not cars for posers. If you want a tuned Porsche just for showing off, go get a Hamann. RUF cars are for keen drivers who are capable of manhandling these untamed monsters which to be honest feel more at home on the race tracks than public roads! You make the slightest mistake, it’ll kill you.
