Rüffer Performance reveals 750 hp desert off-roader Chevrolet Camaro Troubleshooter

Article by Andrew Christian, on October 22, 2015

The Rüffer Camaro "Troubleshooter" R750 6.8 sports an array of elements that supports its function as a high-performing desert off-roader. It’s hard to tear your eyes away from its post-Armageddon looks. However, what deserves more attention is the core of this tough Rüffer Performance Individual Manufaktur -made monster.

Serving as the heart of the Troubleshooter is the classic 6.8-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine that develops up to 750 hp of output and 670Nm of torque. Thus, even without a turbocharger or supercharger, this Offroad Desert Funcar could churn out an exhilarating off-road performance.

This should not come as a surprise, since every creation that came out from Guido Rüffer’s famed tuning shop features no less than 700 hp of output.

Likewise, having a naturally aspirated 6.8-liter V8 power the Troubleshooter should not come as a surprise, since such engine has a thermal load that is always remarkably lower than a forced aspirated motor, which means this powerplant is more advantageous and more durable in hot desert regions where temperatures could rise over 50°C.

To make things even better, Rüffer added a massive extra cooling capacity to keep the engine oil and water as well as transmission and differential lubricants within normal operating temperatures.

Complementing this monstrous engine is the Troubleshooter’s high performance stainless steel exhaust system. Featuring four huge exhaust outlets per side, this exhaust system further made the Troubleshooter more menacing in terms of sounds and looks.

Along with the deep gurgling induction sound coming from the open high-performance intakes, this exhaust system makes the animalistic sound of the V8 into a monstrous one. The engine’s 750 hp of output and 670Nm of torque would be a waste if the Troubleshooter can’t fix itself to the ground.

This is why Rüffer and his team developed a special fully adjustable suspension system with dampers that could be individually tuned for bounce and rebound control. Now, this suspension system has been modified to suit the vehicle’s special off-road desert tires.

Interestingly, the Troubleshooter is just an example of what Rüffer Performance Individual Manufaktur can do. Just as the company’s name indicates, each of the vehicles that went out of the tuner’s factory is distinct, having their own individual characteristics.

Rüffer Camaro “Troubleshooter” R750 6.8

Looking like it can take on the world, the Rüffer Camaro "Troubleshooter" R750 6.8 grabs your attention and makes you want to know what lurks below its tough outer shell.

With its jacked up axles and huge wheels, “Troubleshooter” talks the talk, while the classic 6.8-litre naturally aspirated V8 powerhouse under its bulging bonnet gives it the muscle to walk the walk.

Boasting 750hp and 670Nm of torque, this Offroad Desert Funcar wins its performance spurs without a turbocharger or supercharger in sight. These numbers are par for the course with Guido Rüffer, specialist tuner of American cars, and no exclusive creation has ever left his hallowed factory with less than 700 hp.

Rüffer’s engineers did a great job of kitting out the "Troubleshooter" in accordance with its intended use desert-off-road use. But as post-Armageddon as his latest creation looks, there is no question that the motor is the star here.

The choice of natural aspiration for the 6.8-liter V8 was no accident as the thermal load of such an engine is always significantly lower than a forced aspirated motor. Thus, in desert regions, where temperatures sometimes exceeding 50°C the naturally aspirated engine has a clear advantage in potential durability.

Even so, massive extra cooling capacity was added to keep the engine oil and water, transmission and differential lubricants all within normal operating temperatures.

With four huge exhaust outlets per side, the high performance stainless steel exhaust system has no equal in sight or sound. Combined with the deep gurgling induction noises from the open high-performance intakes, this exhaust amplifies the bent-crank V8-symphony to an unholy crescendo that will be etched into your brain forever.

To ensure that all this power has the best chance of reaching the earth, Guido Rüffer and his team developed a special fully adjustable suspension system with dampers individually tuneable for bounce and rebound control. This is now perfectly calibrated to the characteristics of the special off-road desert tyres.

Just as the “Troubleshooter” is a special vehicle created by Rüffer Performance Individual Manufaktur, customer dreams can be turned into reality, no matter how wild or eccentric they might be. Individuality is the operative word here, and no two vehicles created by Rüffer Performance Individual Manufaktur are ever the same.
