Responsible for elevating the experience of driving a Porsche through bespoke builds that enhance both design and performance, RUF Automobile continues to manufacture modern marvels since its start in 1939. Known for making a statement at Monterey Car Week every year with new models, RUF is proud to shock the automotive world and enthusiasts with two spectacular releases. Unveiled at the start of the fuel-driven festivities on the sunny gold coast, the all-new RUF R Spyder takes shape as the brand’s take on a classic sports car design. The RUF R Spyder began life as a 992 generation Porsche 911 GT3 and is meticulously crafted into a radical study that surrounds the driver and passenger in their own cocoons.
The two-seater open chassis features an ultra-lightweight design with a central “spine” that splits the cabin in two, separating both the driver and passenger. The carbon fiber divider also includes a chronograph clock at the front and an intake at the rear for supplying additional cooling to the 4.0L naturally-aspirated high-revving flat-six engine. The exterior also includes ultra-lightweight carbon fiber upgrades to the rear hood and ducktail spoiler, which also presents integrated intakes and a helmet compartment. Completely redesigned using state-of-the-art performance, braking, suspension technology, and weight-saving designs, the all-new RUF R Spyder is ready to steal the show at Monterey Car Week 2023.
