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 acts 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 and the most notable difference being a speed multipler of 95.75%. Nitro efficiency is rated as 9/14/19.
The RUF CTR 3's current price is 175,000 or 1,150 to purchase, 417,500 to max out, and 312,115 for Pro Kits. Also required for Pro Kits are 5 of each Class S Parts card, 8 F6 Engine cards, and 8 Mid-Tech cards. Prior to the Enduro Update, the RUF CTR 3 was priced at just 175,000 after being raised from 100,000 in The Great Wall Update. As of the Porsche Update, it is no longer available for purchase, although it can still be purchased from the S-Class Car Pack, costing 6,500, although the 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.
Overall, the RUF CTR 3 is not a very wise choice for a go-to Class S car, due to its bias towards top speed and handling at the expense of other performance aspects. While useful for the Career Mode, the CTR 3 is best reserved for RUF-only events.
The RUF CTR 3 appears in Asphalt Overdrive as a Turf 5 car.
