Default Insane 1120 horsepower 9ff GT9-R!

Insane 1120 horsepower 9ff GT9-R revealed!

9ff, just like Ruf, is one of those brands that take the performance of a Porsche to another level!

And their efforts can be seen written all over the new 9ff GT9-R. This machine is capable of churning out an unreal 1120 horsepower from its impressive and extensively modified 4 liter, 6-pot motor! And, that translates into performance figures that can be matched only by a Bugatti Veyron EB16:4 and the American made SSC Ultimate Aero TT.

Let’s give you some figures – 0-100 km/h in 2.9 seconds. 0-300 km/h in 15.8 seconds. Top speed- in excess of 420km/h!

If accurate enough, this car can smash the Veyron’s old record and the Aero TT’s record of 412.28 km/h (256.2 mph) although Keating’s Barabus TKR has posted an unofficial record (418.6 km/h – 260.1 mph). The TKR seems to be the only real threat to the 9ff GT9-R at the moment. Only time will tell!

The GT9-R is available in different states of tune as well. There is a 987 hp version that’s meant for the track in case someone decides to challenge the various records set around the Nurburgring! There is a 750 hp version as well for the not-so hairy chested breed. Don’t be fooled though, it can still clock a 20 second time to 300 from 0!

The loony engines are mated to ‘boxes that are modified to handle the insane levels of power. There is a 6-speed manual or a sequential gearbox on offer. The 5-speed Tiptronic ‘box is an option (!) on the 750 hp variant.

Although there are 20 being built, no two GT9-Rs will be identical! 9ff offers high levels of customization in the form of several aero-kits for the GT9-R so that owners are ensured exclusivity!

There is no word on the pricing yet, but rest assured, even selling one’s vital organs wouldn’t help!

awesome stuff from such a small engine 4litres thats like 280hp per liter , todays F1 cars are methinks 300Hp per litre

9ff is the ultimate for Porsche performance, by the way I want to their website 9ff | Länderauswahl and got a shock when I saw the dealers linky.

I'd forgotten to mention that this car is mid-engined and is based on the 997 GT3!

Hmm isn't GT3 orginally rear engined ? so these guys moved the engine itself ?

I think someone should ask Dante to speak to these guys for his new cayman

If only 20 are built does it qualify to be a production car, if it does then does it make it the fastest production car?

Now you are talking Mr.Porschephile Suhaas!
Insane ride and mid-engined! Someone from Top-gear is grinning! Looks like 9ff plans to carry-forward the GT1 legacy. I'd safely refrain from calling this a souped up VW Beetle.

Hasn't this car been on Top Gear before? In one of the drag races if I remember correctly. The Arial Atom beat everything by miles and the 9ff was driven by Sabine Scmitz.

Yes, the original GT3 is rear engined. It was a 3.6 litre flat six that placed behind the rear axle originally.

I'm not entire sure but somehow, I don't think it would be the fastest production car. Not because it can't do it! But because it's not really a production car!
