RUF / Radical

RUF Automobile GmbH is a German automobile manufacturer. RUFs are built from unmarked Porsche bodies and chassis. When a chassis arrives, RUF builds their own independent work into the car. Because RUF installs many of their own-made parts instead of simply badge engineering, the company is recognised as a manufacturer by the German government. RUF is mostly known for their CTR Yellowbird, and is the biggest and most renowned company to make Porsche performance enhancements. RUF has also made a name for itself as an automobile refiner, specialist in vintage restoration and rebuilds of classic RUF and Porsche automobiles. RUF also carries out service and crash repair.

At Project Cars we have the following cars available:





Radical Sportscars is a car manufacturer based in Peterborough, England. The company was founded by Phil Abbott who is still the Managing Director and Mick Hyde, who has since retired.
During the company’s short but very full 16-year life it has written its own very successful chapter in race and road car manufacturing. This has included designing the world’s favorite racing car, the SR3 RS (800 units sold over ten years and 100 in 2012 alone), designed and constructed its own racing-spec V8 engine (up to 520 bhp yet weighing only 92 kg), contested the 24 Hours of Le Mans five times (Radical SR9) and driven around the Nürburgring Nordschleife faster than any other road registered and road-legal car (6 minutes 48 seconds). This, in addition to a host of other lap records and accolades from the global motoring press.
The company's first car, the Radical 1100 Clubsport, was based on a Kawasaki motorcycle engine placed inside a small open-cockpit chassis. The cars were intended to run in the 750 Motor Club's races under the Sports 2000 category, with co-founder Hyde driving.
In 1999, Radical had built enough 1100 Clubsports that they decided to create a one-make series based around the car. Backed by the British Racing and Sports Car Club, the series featured identical cars that were open to anyone who owned an 1100 Clubsport. The same year, Radical debuted their second model, the Prosport. Available with Kawasaki or Suzuki engine up to 1500 cc in displacement, the Prosports were even more powerful and faster than the Clubsports, and included F3-size slick tyres and an adjustable rear wing. The cars were also brought to the United States for the first time, for use in the SCCA D-Sport class in 2000.
Radical's next creation was the two-seater SR3, a car which could compete in international racing, such as the FIA's C3 class. The car uses a Suzuki-based engine tuned by Powertec (now RPE) which offered 1300 cc or 1500 cc versions and a maximum of 260 hp (190 kW) in the latter. A six-speed sequential gearbox was developed specifically for the car to improve performance. The SR3 could also be made road legal in the United Kingdom with the addition of indicators, a hand brake, a catalytic converter, and road legal tyres.
In 2006, Radical would make its largest leap into international motorsport with the development of the SR9, a complete Le Mans prototype in the LMP2 class. Official partner Rollcentre Racing would debut the car with success in the Le Mans Series and 24 Hours of Le Mans, and SR9s in the hands of independent teams would contest the 24 Hours of Le Mans a further four times.

When is Project CARS coming out?
November 2014 on Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. 2015 on Wii U and Steam OS.

What game is Project CARS like?
Project CARS is a racing simulation so is comparable with popular console franchises Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo whilst also providing the kind of advanced features usually reserved for PC-only simulators like iRacing and rFactor.

Can we upgrade the cars?
Since the game covers such a variety of motorsports, each with their own performance restrictions, all vehicles are non-upgradable and come pre-installed with the best parts possible.

Can you tune the cars?
Yes! Project CARS has a deep tuning system with full control over all aspects of the car's performance. Troubleshoot common problems by checking with the in-game Engineer, get useful hints on technical details via the Digital Manual, and visit the dedicated Test Track to see how your changes perform out on the tarmac.

How many tracks in the game?
Project CARS has the largest track roster of any recent racing game.
