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.”
