Can’t believe we found this one so late, the auction ends in a few hours. Consider this a public service announcement. If you can afford it, you should hurry up and buy this RUF Rt12 S.
It is a 2009 model RUF Rt12 and according to the listing it is the first S-specification example built. Finished in Guards Red over black leather and Alcantara upholstery, the car is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six that drives all four wheels via a six-speed manual transaxle.
Additional features include a limited-slip differential, carbon-ceramic brakes with yellow calipers, adjustable coilover suspension, staggered-width 19” wheels, an exposed carbon-fiber rear wing, an integrated roll cage, automatic climate control, and Porsche Communication Management with navigation. This Rt12 S shows 23k miles and is now offered in California with recent service invoices, import documents, a manufacturer’s statement of origin, and a clean Montana title in the seller’s name.
For a bit of background, the Rt12 S was introduced in 2009 as a higher-powered version of the Rt12, which entered production in 2004 as RUF’s first offering based on the 997-generation Porsche 911. The S variant featured revised aerodynamics, including restyled quarter panels with larger air ducts and side mirrors shared with the RUF CTR3. Additional RUF design elements include a front spoiler as well as a carbon-fiber decklid topped by an exposed carbon-fiber rear wing.
The twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six is equipped with dual intercoolers, dry-sump lubrication, and Bosch electronic fuel injection. Factory-rated power output at the time of the S variant’s introduction was 685 horsepower and 664 lb-ft of torque. Service performed in March 2022 by RUF Automobile in Pfaffenhausen, Germany, included an oil change and replacement of the coolant temperature sensor. Power is sent to all four wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential.
