The RUF CTR Anniversary 2017 is a true performance machine. Under the hood, it boasts a twin-turbocharged flat-six engine that delivers jaw-dropping power and acceleration. The car’s aerodynamic bodywork and sleek lines not only enhance its visual appeal but also contribute to its impressive speed and handling. RUF’s attention to detail is evident in every aspect of this vehicle, from its meticulously crafted interior to its state-of-the-art suspension system. The RUF CTR Anniversary is a testament to RUF’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of automotive engineering and delivering unparalleled driving experiences to enthusiasts around the world.
As for the model, we consider it the cherry of the bunch! Another stellar example from Almost Real at their mid-level price. From an in-depth review read the article by Scenic. It truly goes into all the details for the standard edition. The Almost Real RUF CTR Anniversary is much the same, what significant exterior elements differ comes down to the large rear upper fender intakes – at first glance, you might assume the Anniverray car is wider, but it is not. In addition, a larger rear tail completes the exterior difference. Open the bonnet the motor cosmetics are quite different too – distinct intake and fan shroud colour for one…
Interior-wise, both offerings from Almost Real mirror each other with the exception of the interior colours. Though the original 1:1 interior does show the centre console seems wider and provides three buttons directly in front of the shifter, the Almost Real replica is missing this detail. Now, I’m not stating Almost Real version is not accurate, more research is possible here!
Another tidbit, I also have the Spark RUF CTR Anniversary in 1:18 and there are many notable differences between these two, but I consider the Spark was commissioned on the pre-production R&D spec. Please correct me if I’m wrong here folks… You can read the article from September 2019 HERE!
In short, the Almost Real RUF CTR Anniversary model does hit the mark. It’s not perfect, however, the pros do out weight the cons… Exterior excellence in painting and capturing the updates from the standard car is completed skillfully, though a possible hi-cup on the interior side requires a little more research. I love this path of premier tuner cars Almost Real is taking, hopefully, this will lead to other replicas from RUF, the original Yellow Bird in full opening option is a must! And the likes of Singer and Gunther Werks are options that are drool-worthy. Enjoy the pics!
