Chassis No. W09BM0389APR06006, Engine No. CTR38004. Guards Red over black leather and suede. 3746-cc, 754-hp twin-turbo H-6. 6-speed manual. Cross-drilled carbon brakes, tinted glass, suede steering wheel, and aluminum shift knob.

Evaluation: Original | One of 30 CTR3s and one of two in Guards Red. Represented with three owners and 4600 miles from new. Like new other than a tiny touch-up on the nose.

Bottom Line: It shares components with the Porsche 997 and has classic ­Porsche styling cues, but the RUF CTR3 isn’t just a hotted-up 911—far from it. It has its own chassis—built by Multimatic in Canada—a mid-engine layout, and Kevlar-carbon body panels. And, oh yes, a 754-hp engine. The market for
bespoke hypercars is small, but as we’ve said before, RUF is regarded as a manufacturer in its own right, not as a back-alley tuner, so its cars are collectible. Another CTR3 sold in Monterey in 2018 for $650,000, and a then-new,
improved CTR3 Clubsport model sold in Monaco the same year for $1.28 million.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
