RUF Roadster: official details, photos, specs and price

Article by Christian Andrei, on October 14, 2010

RUF, the well-known German tuning firm specialized in Porsche vehicles, revealed today the RUF Roadster, a modern interpretation of the legendary 1967 Porsche 911 Targa. The car was fitted with an integrated roll cage which combines the safety of a Coupé with the fresh air feeling of a convertible.

Furthermore, the 1967 Porsche 911 Targa was offered with a centre piece of the roof that could be removed and folded. The new car from RUF features the same specification as the old car did and also comes with a flexible plastic rear window that can be folded, just like the 911 Targa.

As expected, the new car is aerodynamically optimized, while the lower rear window and two extremely light, removable roof pieces are made using carbon fiber.

The "soft" rear window is made of a three-layer polyglass, an electric engine keeps the rear window tight. This means that the RUF Roadster can be driven completely enclosed, completely open, or with a closed roof and open rear window, or open roof and closed rear window.

The car is powered by a 294 kW (400 hp) six cylinder boxer engine but if you want to, RUF can install a more powerful turbocharged engine delivering 412 kW (560 hp).

The engines use a six-speed manual gearbox. A dual-clutch gearbox as well as an all-wheel drive can be installed as an option. Powered by the standard 3.8-liter boxer engine delivering 400 hp, the car can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 295 km/h (183 mph) The RUF Roadster comes equipped as standard with 19 inch forged aluminum wheels. Base price starts at €195.000, without taxes.
