    Hey ! That Ruf looks familiar !

    That is in Lexington KY, and the F50 belongs to a good friend of mine who is one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet...

    That doesn't look like a RUF R Turbo to me. More like a 996TT with the aerokit package and some RUF rims?

    edit: ah, but it does have a RUF badge on the front hood, weird

    Good eye, it is my Ruf R Turbo, 550hp spec (closer to 600hp according to factory)...I took a new 996 Turbo and had Ruf do a full package on it including 550hp engine, wheels, Ruf Suspension, Instruments, exhaust, short shifter, and taller 6th gear good for 219 mph. Car will do 0-60 in 3.5 secs all day long....

    Oh, the hood badge was placed by Ruf !

    WOW, nice & congrats! How much was the upgrade?

    That's a real sleeper, since it doesn't look like a R Turbo at all. And you can give the F50 owner a run for his money, thats for sure

    Also, Ruf will do 3 grades of engine in the R Turbo...

    standard is 520hp

    next is the 550hp variant..

    and finally, the monster "Nardo" engine, good for 590hp (640hp in reality)..it has titanium inner workings and higher spec cams...

    Why do you say this doesn't look like a RTurbo? Here is another RTurbo, owned by Mr. Bass and driven in the Gumball. Still has the Gumball Rally sticker on the car too even after about a year later.

    Go to my website here for the pics. Too big to upload.

    [size=+3]How about a "NOT WORK SAFE" line in the title!!!!![/size]
    Are you trying to get me fired???!!!

    I think that is a very important "rule" we have here.

    As soon as I saw that red F50 I had no choice but to whip it out and have at it. Thanks a lot!

    This is probably a really, really stupid question, but what is the fourth pedal for?
