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.
