2006 9ff Cayman CR 42 news, pictures, specifications, and information

There is no doubt: All our understanding begins wîth experience. What else should awaken our intellect if not objects appealing to our senses, producing, on the one hand, ideas all by themselves, while, on the other hand, inviting our intellectual capacity to compare, associate or to divide them in order to transform the raw material of our sensory impressions into the sort of understanding called experience?

Titles, records and everyday work are experiences which have brought 9ff to an understanding that gave birth to the idea of creating this homage to our senses.

The clear, no-nonsense, but nevertheless powerful design of the CR42 is a clear mirror reflecting the philosophy of the small-series manufacturer from Dortmund.

Elegant, aerodynamically efficient and wîth a sharpened precision.

The two-seater convinces in every respect by its love for detail. First to mention are the excitingly designed and very light disc wheels equipped wîth a patented central locking system and the precisely adjustable chassis comprising any imaginable component and, last but not least, the attached parts partially manufactured from carbon.

Cleverly combined, but also reasonable in detail.

But, the 9ff CR42's highlight is hidden deep inside the mid-engined sports car: A 4.1L flat engine generously offering its 420hp as well as its powerful 435Nm of torque. This is the basis for thrilling driving performances and a superior power development vaporising any benchmark in its §egmènt.

The 9ff Cayman masters the sprint of prestige to 100km/h in 4.4 seconds, and about 10 seconds later, the CR42 already passes the 200km/h mark.

Even the smaller engine version – wîth a displacement of 3.8 litres – outshone all its competitors wîth its performance during a comparative test at AMS.

The understanding gained there may by now be experienced through the 9ff CR42.

1958 Monaco Grand Prix: An Unlikely Frenchman Steals the Show…Again
In 1955, perhaps the most unlikely of drivers would survive the attrition and the beckoning Monaco harbor to claim his only victory in Formula One. Some three years later, and more unlikely than ever to even win a second race at any circuit, the same Frenchman would steal the crown jewel to become just the second man in Formula One history to earn two or more victories on the streets of the principality. Maurice Trintignant's victory in the chaotic and drama-filled 1955 Monaco Grand Prix was...[Read more...]
1964 Nurburgring 1000 Kilometers: Survive for One Last Victory
During the late 1950s, Richie Ginther would begin a relationship with John von Neumann and this partnership would result in one of the most dominant periods of American sportscar racing in which Ginther and Porsche would be virtually unbeatable. Nearly a decade later, that same combination would again join forces to provide one more moment of glory. By the mid-1950s Porsche had developed its 550. This was a small car more than capable of dominating its class and consistently able to challenge...[Read more...]
1962 Monaco Grand Prix: McLaren Carries the Cooper Flag back to the Top
By the beginning of the 1962 Formula One season Jack Brabham had left Cooper to form his own racing team. It seemed the glories days of the double World Championship were well and truly behind them. However, left in Brabham's stead would be a man very akin to the Australian in so many ways. And in Bruce McLaren, Cooper had a driver and competitor more than apt to help carry the team forward into the future. The first race of the 1962 season, the Grand Prix of the Netherlands, certainly didn't...[Read more...]
