Legendary supercar manufacturer RUF Automobile has taken the automotive world by storm with the debut of its all-new cutting-edge air-cooled study, the RUF Tribute, at The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering. Intended to pay homage to the iconic air-cooled 911 that made its first appearance 60 years ago, the Tribute embodies the essence of innovation and technology while celebrating classic Porsche design.
Powering the RUF Tribute is an all-new 3.6-liter six-cylinder twin-turbocharged engine, meticulously designed by Alois Ruf. With a robust 550 horsepower, the powerplant carries the air-cooled charm and soul into the modern age. The engine’s intricate design includes billet aluminum cylinder heads, four-cam three-valve technology with variable valve timing and lift, and dry-sump lubrication. Engine specs such as twin turbochargers and twin intercoolers, hydraulic valve adjustment, fly-by-wire throttle, and two-stage resonance induction ensure that the Tribute showcases modern engineering while retaining the classic charisma.
The drivetrain, mounted in the renowned RUF modular system found in the CTR Anniversary and SCR models, takes performance to new heights. Notable features include double-wishbone suspension, the RUF Integrated Roll Cage, and the use of a featherweight carbon-fiber chassis, adding to the vehicle’s unique characteristics.
The RUF Tribute is more than just a supercar; it’s a symbol of automotive heritage reimagined through contemporary technology. By seamlessly blending the past’s grace with today’s innovation, RUF Automobile has created a track machine that transcends generations, presenting a thrilling opportunity for enthusiasts and collectors to embrace a timeless piece of engineering excellence.
