The RUF CTR 3, also known as the RUF CTR3, is a mid-engined, limited-production Porsche-based supercar.
Released two decades after the original RUF CTR on April 11, 2007, the RUF CTR 3 continues RUF's tradition of enhancing Porsche automobiles, sharing body panels and the engine from Porsche.
For the first time, though, the CTR 3 is built with a RUF-designed body on a RUF-designed platform, reflecting the "classic" visual feel of older Porsche sports cars. Additionally, the CTR 3 adopted the Porsche Cayman's mid-engine layout rather than a traditional rear-engine layout like with the CTR and CTR 2. The car weighs 3086 lb (1400 kg) with a body built out of steel, aluminum, and kevlar-carbon.
The engine of the RUF CTR 3 is a 3.8L Porsche-derived flat-6 engine supplemented with twin KKK/Siemens turbochargers; the flat-6 produces 690 hp (515 kW) at 7,000 rpm and 657 ft·lb (891 N·m) at 4,000 rpm. Each turbocharger has an intercooler placed in front of each rear wheel. The CTR 3 uses a six-speed sequential transmission that is transversely mounted and uses a limited slip differential to maximize performance. On the dashboard, a shift indicator shows the gear being used.

The RUF CTR 3 is a Tier 7 car that requires 255 Stars to unlock and is purchased for 510,000 Cash.
The RUF CTR 3 acted as a slightly improved version of the RUF RT 12 S, carrying the basic same performance characteristics but with slightly better nitro power and handling, as well as a Speed Modification of 95.75%. It had a mediocre nitro efficiency of 9/14/19. Overall, the RUF CTR 3 was not a common choice for a go-to Class S car, due to its bias towards top speed and handling at the expense of everything else. While it was useful for clearing Class S races in Career Mode, the CTR 3 was best reserved for RUF-only events.
The RUF CTR 3 initially cost 100,000 to purchase, 417,500 to max out, and 312,115 to PRO. Pro Kits required 5 of each Class S Parts card, 8 F6 Engine cards, and 8 Mid-Tech cards. The CTR 3's purchase cost was raised to 175,000 during The Great Wall Update. The Enduro Update added an option to purchase the CTR 3 with tokens, so its cost thereafter was 175,000 or 1,150. As of the Porsche Update, it was no longer available for purchase; although it could still be purchased from the S-Class Car Pack, which cost 6,500, this car pack was later removed. Prior to the aforementioned update, the CTR 3 and all other Porsche-derived cars were given away via giveaway cups.
The RUF CTR 3 appears in Asphalt Overdrive as a Turf 5 car.
