In-game DescriptionEdit

This description is taken from the PAL version of Gran Turismo 2:

For some people, even a RUF Turbo needs a little extra spice. So RUF has obliged with the Turbo R. The German company has upgraded the air-cooled flat-six engine with two KKK turbochargers and twin oil coolers. A new engine management system is installed, the cylinder heads receive special RUF camshafts and the exhaust system is modified. Therefore, the 3.6-litre powerplant develops 490BHP when spinning at 5,500rpm. The torque curve peaks at a not-inconsiderable 480 lb-ft at 4,800rpm. Drive goes to all four wheels via an uprated six-speed transmission or the optional six-speed EKS electronic clutch system, pushing the Turbo R to 62mph in just 3.8 seconds, then on to a top speed of 192mph. Maximum speed will vary according to the gear ratios fitted, but that's a pretty good ballpark to be in. Suspension is not overlooked either. RUF-calibrated springs, shocks[1] and bushes are fitted. Inside those famous flared wheel arches are RUF-designed 18-inch OZ alloy wheels, encompassed by 225/40 and 285/30 tyres front and rear, respectively. Naturally, the brakes are also uprated correspondent to the hike in power. The Turbo R's styling is (comparatively) subtle. A few extra air intakes, a re-designed rear wing, the body sitting lower than normal, yet it still has the unmistakable air of a serious performance car, which it most definitely is. RUF doesn't tolerate turbo lag in any of its cars and the Turbo R's engine management system means this car is no exception. When you're inside it, you can tell from the (optional) in-house-designed instrumentation - incorporating a boost pressure gauge - that you're not just in a souped-up version of the famous Stuttgart marque, but in reality you're in a car that's been virtually re-created from the ground up. All it needs is a serious driver to exploit its awesome potential.
