Pre-Order Project CARS and Recieve Special Ruf CTR3 SMS-R Vehicle
When you pre-order Project CARS from selected retailers you get your hands on a one-of-a-kind vehicle – the Ruf CTR3 SMS-R. Up until now this unique car has been under wraps in testing but now we’re ready to unveil it and tell you a bit more about how the collaboration between Slightly Mad Studios and Ruf…
Further blurring the lines between reality and gaming, the Ruf CTR3 SMS-R is a race spec version created by the talented engineers at veteran developers Slightly Mad Studios of the already-impressive Ruf CTR3 super sports car. With a stripped interior, bespoke bodywork and highly-tuned engine, the Ruf CTR3 SMS-R produces over 750 horsepower and a staggering 330 km/h top speed making it a truly unique combination of technical excellence and aesthetic passion.
“We wanted the bodywork to reflect our idea of what Ruf would really do if they were to make a track-only version of the CTR3, very much like what Pagani did with the Zonda R” says Vehicle Lead Casey Ringley.
“As a result, none of the bodywork is excessively extreme and it takes a lot of cues from modern GT3 class cars: dive planes at the front, swan neck rear wing, aggressive diffuser and other little details that are normal for a car that is honed to perform on the track.”
Mechanically, the engine is similar to the CTR3 Clubsport with 767hp and 980Nm of torque! That power level puts it on a par with the aforementioned Pagani Zonda R and allows it to compete alongside it in the GT1X class in-game.
By the removal of 270kg of weight and the addition of an aerodynamics package that doubles the downforce of the road car and tuned suspension for increased cornering loads, the SMS-R is a machine that could entirely exist in the real world thanks to the authentic way that it was created using techniques that real drivers have used for decades – cutting weight, tuning suspension, improving aero.
Exclusive to Project CARS and only available as part of the Modified Car Pack, the CTR3 SMS-R is a pioneering machine that further shows how Project CARS continues to push the boundaries between reality and gaming. Get your hands on it by pre-ordering on projectcarsgame.com/preorder
