The most striking feature of this custom- built car is its subtle and yet massive changes that are equally noticeable and unnoticeable. The design gives the car its well- balanced uniqueness and beauty.

The 440 horse power Coupé blends the balance of a mid engine power plant with chassis stiffness elegant curve lines and the perfect handling to make the “RK Coupé” a truly world class performer.

The RK stands for RUF KOMPRESSOR. The basis of this compressor engine is a centrifugal compressor with a planetary gearbox –a kind of mechanical turbo charger, which is driven mechanically by a Poly-Rip belt. The maximum boost is 0.7 bar. The engine has RUF designed intake manifolds with integrated intercoolers, new injectors, sports catalytic converters and a RUF electronic engine management system. The water-cooled charge cooler has a cooling water circuit with an electric water pump from the water cooler in the front spoiler.

The supercharged 3.8 litre engine of the RUF RK Coupé provides a 440 bhp (324 kW) at 7,000 RPM and 470 Nm torque at 5,500 RPM.

The acceleration from 0 – 100 km/h (0 – 62 mph) of the 3.8 litre RK Coupé with a RUF compressor engine takes only 4.3 sec., from 0 – 200 km/h (0 – 125 mph) only 13.0 sec. The maximum speed is 304 km/h (190 mph).
