RUF launches new SCR for 2018
Carbon-bodied ‘Sports Carrera Ruf’ features 4.0-litre, 510PS flat six capable of 200mph
German tuning giant RUF Automobile has revealed its scintillating new SCR model as its marquee car of 2018.
Given its public debut at the Geneva Motor Show, the SCR features a full carbon fibre shell designed by RUF with integrated roll cage, plus monocoque chassis. The car weighs just 1,250kg and is powered by an air-cooled, 4.0-litre flat six with a power output of 510PS.
RUF says design cues on the new SCR, such as the large front spoiler with round brake-cooling ducts and integral oil cooler, pay homage to the original ground-breaking car. “The SCR is a lightweight, naturally aspirated driver’s car that is designed to delight driving purists and enthusiasts alike,” says director, Estonia Ruf. “The new chassis will provide us with the ability to continue to produce some truly stunning individual cars, while using modern technologies that will define a new era in the history of RUF.”
