on the Porsche 997, the R Kompressor is the
latest RUF creation. The body styling of the RUF R Kompressor
merges the aesthetics of a plain and discreet line with pure
Whereas the front of the R Kompressor expresses pure dynamics,
the design of the rear is more unobtrusive. The spoiler rear
hood and the rear wing are made of high-quality Kevlar-Carbon.
Aerodynamically optimized RUF side mirrors complete the optical
design of the R Kompressor.
The interior is conservative - as it is usual for RUF vehicles.
The RUF instruments with green scaling make the classic flair.
Even in fast driven turns the RUF bucket seats offer very good side support. The RUF sports steering wheel, the RUF gear knob, the RUF aluminum pedal
set and the foot rest finish the sportive and elegant interior.
Another aesthetic detail are the 19 wheels in the classic
RUF style. At the front axle the width of the wheels is 8.5
and they are equipped with 255/35 ZR19 tires. 11 wide wheels
and 305/30 ZR19 tires are used at the rear axle. The high performance
RUF brakes are fitted with 4-piston-aluminium-callipers and
330 mm ventilated and drilled cast iron disks in the front and
330 millimeters and 4-pistons-calipers in the rear.
The RUF 3.8-liter Kompressor engine is a 6 cylinder
24 valve engine which is equipped with a Kompressor and two
water-cooled intercoolers. This engine offers the best acceleration,
good torque and high top speed. The impressive performance and
the powerful torque constantly present at all engine speeds.
The basis of the supercharged engine is the centrifugal Kompressor
with a planetary gear box. This supercharger works like a mechanic
turbo charger which is operated by a v-belt. The maximum boost
is 0.5 bar. The engine has an aluminum intake manifold which
was developed by RUF with two integrated intercoolers, optimized
injection valves, a lower base compression, sport catalytic converters with greater performance and a newly adjusted
electronic engine management system. Both integrated water-cooled
intercoolers are supported by an electronic pump with a cooling
fluid from the additional water cooler at the front spoiler.
The 3.8-liter supercharged engine of the RUF R Kompressor achieves
435 bhp at 7,000 rpm and has a maximum torque of 347 lb-ft at
The RUF R Kompressor accelerates in 4 seconds from 0 to 60 mph
and in 13.6 seconds from 0 to 124 mph. Top speed, depending
on the gear transmission ratio, is 186 mph.
The R Kompressor is manufactured at RUF Automobile GmbH in Pfaffenhausen,
Germany. All RUF R Kompressor models are handmade from laying
the harness, to fitting the interior, to mounting the suspension
and brake kit to the wedding fitting the engine-gear-box-
unit into the body. Each engine is tested on the dyno. Before
RUF delivers a RUF R Kompressor to the customer, the engineers
test-drive every vehicle in detail.
