Getting the Porsche 911 S, a monster in its own right, as a basis for its new street-legal sportscar, German RUF tuning company has created a real earth-scorcher. Having enough oomph to effortlessly jump from zero to 62 mph in just 4.1 seconds and achieve stunning 189 mph (300 km/h), the new supercar even beats the new Carrera S in terms of acceleration, top speed and available power.

This is done with the help of a supercharged 3.8-liter Kompressor engine.

Based on a standard flat-six 6-cylinder 24-valve powerplant, it adds a pair of water-cooled intercoolers and a centrifugal Kompressor with planetary gearbox, with additional cooling provided from a separate water cooler, which is mounted right behind the front spoiler.

Thanks to the mighty superchargers, the RUF R Kompressor achieves 435 hp of maximum power output reached at 7,000 rpm and features a peak torque of 347 lb-ft (470 Nm) at 5,000 rpm.

The Porsche 911 RUF R Kompressor comes rolling on a set of 19-inch wheels, wrapped in 255/35 ZR19 front a 305/30 ZR19 rear tires.

There is also a set of high performance RUF brakes that are fitted with 4-piston-aluminium-callipers and 330 mm ventilated and drilled cast iron disks in the front and 330 millimeters and 4-pistons-calipers in the rear.
