THE 2012

Autobahn AdventuresThe new 991 inspired RGT-8 made its  debut at the 2012 Geneva Auto Salon and features the naturally aspirated V8 developed by RUF that produces 550hp.It is the first V8-powered Porsche 911 (991) in the world. The flexibility of the V8 engine delivers extraordinary performance and a sound track that only a high-revving, flat-crank  V8 can produce. The V8 engine was inspired   by racing technology and features hemispherically arranged valves, 180 degree flat crankshaft, dry sump lubrication and direct drive ancillaries eliminating all drive belts.The RGT 8 is available with only a six-speed manual transmission powering the rear wheels. The engine produces 550hp at 8,500rpm and maximum torque at 500Nm at 4,000rpm. The top speed is 318km/h.RUF is one of our favorite places to visit and is just one of the many great things you will experience on one of our Luxury European Driving Tours.
