If I remember correctly the 590 hp version has a 0-60(or 0-100kph) of around 3.8 seconds, the top speed w/ the different 6th gear option is about 220 mph or roughly 350 kph. I rode in the 590 hp model and I drove the 550 hp model. Both have an insane amount of power, driving it on the autobahn i kept forgetting what gear i was in because they all so much power.9852147 said:welcome on the board!
and thank you for the very nice pictures.
btw do you have any performance figures of the ruf rturbo with 590hp?
never saw any reviews of this car. would like to know how fast it is... (topspeed, 0-200 and 0-300 would be interesting)
i am sure you took a ride on it? :wroom: how was your impression?
wish i could, I worked there last summer, I am back at school now studying mechanical engineering.chunpng said:Thanks for the pictures. Please say Hi to Adam for us.
The white car was an interesting model. It had 550 hp, however the owner decided to do the 2wd conversion and it also has air suspension to raise and lower the vehicle at low speeds.Andy-UK said:That white RUF looks fantastic. Bet it's a right pain to keep clean.
I've just been reading some threads on the pistonheads forums and apparently the episode will be shown on Monday April 11th at 8.30 (on channel 5)kensei said:Great pictures. Do you know the date the episode of 5th gear aired with this event in it?
Oh, didn't know it was that recent. I remember seeing video of Adam on a runway with his CTR from a few years back. I figured it was that.RoadBeef said:This Fifth Gear episode was filmed just this last weekend, so it will be used in their new season this year.
I'll keep an eye out for the schedule for you if you'd like, Kensei.
guy, did you take times at the vmax event? i saw the pictures at 6speedonline.com and they are just stunning...GuyGT2 said:Ruf don't tend to release many performance figures for any of their cars.
I will be data-logging my car next time I run with my GPS data-logger, so will get some times.
My car is substantially lighter than a Turbo, being GT2 based and having some carbon panels, but suffers off the line from only having 2wd.

Just looking at the Fifth Gear programing schedule on Speed Channel over here in the US and that is the description of the episode being aired on April 28, 2005 under the title "Ultimate Shootout."
Can't wait to see it!
