Rare and valuable 2015 RUF RT12 R going under the hammer soon
In January, Mecum Auctions will be selling one out of 13 RT12 R sports cars built by the famous aftermarket shop RUF seven years ago with the Porsche 911 as the starting point. Only two cars were commissioned with a RWD instead of AWD, including this example.
The stock 3.8-liter flat-six engine landed with a couple of KKK turbos, an alloy intake, titanium connecting rods and Mahle pistons, as well as custom-fabricated cams. The resulting 740 PS (730 hp / 544 kW) and 940 Nm (693 lb-ft) of torque are enough to let you sprint 0-96.6 km/h (0-60 mph) in 3.3 seconds before maxing out at 370 km/h (230 mph).
Elsewhere, the sports car features coilovers for suspension, centerlock wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires and carbon-ceramic brake rotors with yellow calipers. The body looks fresh thanks to a new rear wing, side skirts and different bumpers at both ends complete with air vents for more efficient cooling.
Inside, the entire trim is new and a sight to behold. The seats have carbon-fiber frames and come wrapped in tartan fabric, while the rest of the cabin uses a combination of fine leather and Alcantara.
