Memes, Twins, and Birds: TOPCAR HH NEWS REBELLION EMOBILE MAZDA The Brand New Ruf That Isn't Based On Porsche Still Looks Like One Anyway SEGULA Via @carthrottlenews - You know we said Ruf had built its own car that for the first time wasn’t based on a Porsche? Well, as it turns out, it’s not quite the split from convention that we imagined. - In homage to the 1987 CTR Yellow Bird, a completely bonkers 210mph version of the contemporary 911, Ruf has clothed its brand new carbon-tubbed CTR 2017 in a body that, well, let’s just say Porsche might be a bit miffed if Ruf hasn’t asked permission. - The reason for bothering with an all-new chassis, then? Porsche’s latest are too big to get the effect Ruf wanted. - It’s 1987 styling all over again, with flat-cut five-spoke alloys and a gigantic spoiler, yellow paint and upright, round headlights. But the details are very much 2017, like the lower ride height, the modern headlight technology and the obviously not Porsche interior, clothed in Alcantara at almost every surface apart from the tartan leather seats. - That amazingly wide body is all carbon, too, so you really, really wouldn’t want to crash it even at low speed. Is it a slice of pure hotness or is it a shame that Ruf didn’t come up with its own styling to match all the effort it put into building the chassis? - Either way, it’s fast. A dry weight of just 1200kg makes it lighter than a McLarenn 720S, but taller gearing for the 700bhp twin-turbo Ruf means it’s not as fast. Expect 0-62mph in 3.5 seconds and 0-124mph in less than nine, but the top speed of 224mph does trump the McLaren’s 212mph. - Traction comes from 305-section rear tyres that dwarf the 245-section fronts, and it needs plenty of grip to contain the 649lb ft of torque at just 2750rpm. The engine, a Porsche-mimicking 3.6-litre flat-six, is built by Ruf itself based on the design of the engine in the 1987 Yellow Bird. - We don’t know whether to love it for blending the old and the new so completely, or wish the exterior was more than just a carbon copycat.

80s, Ferrari, and Memes: HH NEWS Here's The New 681bhp Ferrari No One Expected Via @carthrottlenews - One thing no one, anywhere has said about the Ferrari 488 is that it needs more power, but to hell with that: they’ve gone and delivered it anyway. - This is the limited-edition Ferrari J50, a completely unexpected targa based on the 488 but with the 3.9-litre V8’s wick turned up to 681bhp – 20bhp more than the standard car. - Just 10 are being built to celebrate 50 years of the Italian brand’s presence in Japan, and no you can’t have one because you can bet they’re already sold, with each being tailored to the customer that bought it. How much? If you have to ask… - There are plenty of press release references to the 1950s, ’60s, ’70s and ’80s. Serious bodywork mods include the “helmet visor”-style glass area, a bonnet that’s lower than standard at the centre and a black ‘dividing line’ that circles the new front bumper below knee height. All this, says Ferrari, turns it into a heritage-friendly barchetta. - The LED headlights are new, as are the wheels and interior trim. To accommodate the heavily revised front end the radiators have been moved closer together and the windscreen header rail has been lowered for better air flow up from the lower nose. - As for keeping the rain out, obviously if you’ve bought one you’re rich and live somewhere where it doesn’t rain. That or you have much garage space. But just in case, there’s a two-piece carbon-fibre hard top that stows, ahem, “conveniently behind the seats.” - Built by Ferrari’s Special Projects department and designed by the in-house Maranello team, this is likely to be a Ferrari collector’s wet dream from day one. We can’t wait to see the final sale value the first time one goes to auction.
