Whatever happened to the RGT8?


CTR2017 starting at 750k€. 30 examples but all sold out. SCR starting at 650k€. Limited by the annual production capacity. Still very limited. SCR is the first variant of the new era using the new carbon monocoque.

Consider the V8 a personal project for Alois Ruf now. The engine itself was not clean enough for the environment (not us petrolhead would care but..) & can never catch up to the periodical EU emission standard. So it was dropped.

The black RGT8 test mule would always be a special memory for me. Lucky to drive it and it was fantastic. Imagine a 997 GT3RS 4.0 (still the best of 4.0 imo) with more torque...

Is there any plans to further develop the monocoque for different body types? Speedsters? Targas? Cabs?
That's a shame that we won't see the V8, I was fascinated by it and it disappeared. I hope they still find a way to produce that engine.

Never got to drive the V8 mule, but back in 2010, heard it on the dyno. Mrs Ruf at the time requested this not to be posted, as the project was top secret at the time. As the motor's sad fate is now known, i guess this should be ok to share now...


sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread!

Someone needs to separately import the car and engine to the US, specifically Florida.
No problem to title and insure.

I like his older stuff much better. This modernized aesthetic on an otherwise old shape just doesn't jive with me.

I'd take this bad boy ueber alles.

Oh man these are art. And I concur with the previous statements. The green is gorgeous and perfectly fits the personality of the lines.

It's proper unique custom stuff like the inboard suspension and the fact that all the dimensions are actually different from a 911.. only the windows fit. This is a machine with really different tech and provenance, an awesome naturally aspirated engine. All business, all beauty.
Many thanks for sharing the experience. And the SCR in particular can't be brought to attention enough to my opinion. If you have more details of the visit feel free please to share.
