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...]

The Champion in Touring Car Racing : The BMW M3
In August 1985, a rumour surfaced in motor magazine Auto-Deutschland which emanated from a new sports car. An A Group Car from BMW that was a thoroughbred racing car according to the rules but was also to be produced in a version licensed to drive on open roads for everyday use. Speculation about this dream car that could take to normal roads and was intended for the 'Most dynamic among BMW 3 Series drivers' was right on target. But the pundits missed the mark about the motor-sport car by a mile...[Read more...]
