A special car from a special company, the Ruf RT12R is an incredibly fast and well-resolved road legal track-day car that is civilized enough to be driven daily. However, it’s the look that really captivates. Thanks to the dynamic CTR3 front end, the familiar 997 shape takes on a whole new persona. It’s the perfect 21st century interpretation of the classic 911.
