2000 Ruf RGT

For those who missed purchasing a GT3, there is now a superior alternative – the RUF RGT with an elevated power output of 395 bhp. This normally aspirated power-plant performance is achieved through equipping the GT3 – based engine with a performance exhaust system, air filter and a re-mapped engine management system.

RUF offers this motor car in either 2WD or optional 4WD. The standard body style is the 996 Coupe with a Ruf design aero kit, however the 996 Cabriolet body is also an option. The RGT Coupe comes complete with the latest development of the renowned RUF Integrated Roll Cage system, which is fully trimmed and very unobtrusive.

An up-rated brake system is a part of the package; the front discs are of 350 mm diameter and equipped are with 6-piston Brake Calipers.

Beginning September 2004, this car is available with the RUF – Hydraulically Adjustable Suspension System.

Aerodynamic aids are also an integrated part of the RGT package, which includes a new front bumper/spoiler sill extensions, side mirrors and rear spoiler – for increased downforce.
