For 2017 and the new CTR, RUF has chosen to do away with a Porsche chassis, arriving here on the 30th anniversary of the original CTR, the Yellowbird.

The 2017 CTR makes use of an in-house carbon fiber monocoque structure, connected to steel crash structures front and rear. Thanks to the newly-implemented lightweight chassis, the rear engine ride now weighs in at 2,640 pounds.

Under the hood you will find a 3.6-liter Porsche-derived flat-six, twin-turbocharged engine capable of cranking out 700 horsepower and 649 pound-feet of torque. While being rear drive-only, the CTR then uses a six-speed manual transmission. Before topping out at 225 miles per hour, the RUF creation will in turn take you from 0 to 62 mph in 3.5 seconds.

The interior, on the other hand, notes touches of Alcantara and carbon fiber to further shave weight.
