VIDEO: 730 hp Race-Spec Porsche 997 RUF Rt 12 R Goes for a Test Drive

Ruf RT 12 R

The RUF RT 12 R made its debut last month at the Geneva Motor Show. Based on the Porsche 997, RUF dropped the weight down to 1495 kg and coaxed 730 horsepower and 693 lb-ft of torque from its 3.8-liter twin-turbo engine.

In this video, the driver Martin explains why the RUF RT 12 R is one of the fastest cars he’s even driven. And the man is no stranger to supercars. With a top speed of 370 km/h (230 mph), the RT 12 R is designed from the ground up for racing, as the next evolutionary step from the previous Rt 12 S. The car is listed at 279,000 Euro sans taxes.
