Ruf releases another mindblowingly fast tuned Porsche, the superchagred Porsche 997 named RUF R Kompressor

The tuned 997 Porsche, RUF R Kompressor is the latest RUF creation. The body styling of the tuned 997 Porsche, RUF R Kompressor merges the aesthetics of a plain and discreet line with pure sportiness.

Whereas the front of the tuned Porsche, R Kompressor expresses pure dynamics, the design of the rear is more unobtrusive. The spoiler rear hood and the rear wing are made of high-quality Kevlar-Carbon. Aerodynamically optimized RUF side mirrors complete the optical design of the R Kompressor.

The interior is conservative - as it is usual for RUF vehicles. The RUF instruments with green scaling make the classic flair. Even in fast driven turns the RUF bucket seats offer very good side support. The RUF sport steering wheel, the RUF gear knob, the RUF aluminium pedal set and the foot rest finish the sportive and elegant interior.

Upgraded Ruf suspension, brakes, rubber

Another aesthetic detail are the 19' wheels in the classic RUF style. At the front axle the width of the wheels is 8.5” and they are equipped with 255/35 ZR 19 Pirelli tyres. 11” wide wheels and 305/30 ZR 19 Pirelli tyres are used at the rear axle. The high performance RUF brakes are fitted with 4-piston-aluminium-callipers and 330 mm ventilated and drilled cast iron disks in the front and 330 millimetres and 4-pistons-calipers in the rear.

Ruf's answer to a Porsche 997 Supercharger

The RUF 3.8 litre Kompressor engine is a 6 cylinder 24 valve engine which is equipped with a Kompressor and two water-cooled intercoolers. This engine offers the best acceleration, good torque and high top speed. The impressive performance and the powerful torque constantly present at all engine speeds. The basis of the supercharged engine is the centrifugal Kompressor with a planetary gear box. This supercharger works like a mechanic turbo charger which is operated by a v-belt. The maximum boost is 0.5 bar. The engine has an aluminium intake manifold which was developed by RUF with two integrated intercoolers, optimized injection valves, a lower base compression, sport catalytic converters with greater performance and a newly adjusted electronic engine management system. Both integrated water-cooled intercoolers are supported by an electronic pump with a cooling fluid from the additional water cooler at the front spoiler.
