10 Spectacular New Cars Revealed At 2023 Monterey Car Week

We conclude with a triple-header. World-renowned sports car manufacturer (not tuner) RUF has presented three new cars at Monterey. One is the RUF CTR3 Evo, with the suffix denoting that this is a more extreme version of the 911 GT2-like CTR3. Instead of 775 hp, you get 800 ponies, enabling 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds and a claimed top speed of 235 mph. RUF’s most powerful car to date is a beast.

If the longtail life is not for you, perhaps a roofless roadster is. The RUF Spyder R comes with a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six producing 508 hp, but the main focal point is the bodywork, which features no real windscreen or roof. It’s like a budget Ferrari Monza SP2, but it’ll still make a big dent in your trust fund.

Finally, we have the RUF Tribute, a sports car powered by a 3.6-liter twin-turbo air-cooled flat-six producing 543 hp. The engine is all-new and was designed by founder Alois Ruf. Old-school styling with just enough modernity characterizes all RUF creations, and this is no different. As a “love letter to air cooling,” it’s sure to be a hit with purists.
