2014 RCT

2014 RUF RCT

 

 

RUF’s turbocharged cars have a proven track record, sustained over 37 years at the cutting edge of automotive technology and design. A milestone model is the RUF RCT, originally launched in 1994. The abbreviation “RCT” stands for “RUF Carrera Turbo”. The performance gains achieved by transforming a normally-aspirated flat-six power-unit into a high-torque motor through RUF’s renowned turbo technology were enthusiastically received by devotees, clients and media alike. The RCT quickly became very successful, and the 2014-generation RCT pays sincere homage to the heritage of RUF’s turbo models. 

The RUF RCT’s new, intercooled twin-turbo 3.8-litre engine develops 525 hp (386 kW) at 6.800 rpm. Maximum torque is 502 lb/ft (680 Nm), arriving between 2.300 and 4.500 rpm. The RCT’s rear wing creates optimum down force over the rear axle to further augment handling, whilst directing air to the rear-mounted intercooler. The exhaust system is specially tuned to improve power output, while also producing an aural delight. The RUF RCT coupe can be configured with rear-wheel drive as well as an all-wheel drive power train. RUF’s vast options list for the RCT includes the famous IRC - or Integrated Roll Cage, custom suspension packages, as well as an enticing palette of bespoke colours and interior upholstery materials.
