Specialist sports car maker RUF now finally in UK

Manufacturer of Porsche-based sports cars - RUF Automobile - is to open its first UK office in partnership with luxury and specialist vehicle brokers, 

Managing Director of RUF Automobile GmbH, Estonia Ruf stated: “The opening of the UK office comes at an important time for us because our range of cars is now the strongest it has ever been. The reception we received at the 2016 Geneva Motor show this year was incredible and the level of interest in the latest RUF cars has exceeded all of our expectations.”

Founded in 1939 in Pfaffenhausen, Germany, RUF Automobile has been manufacturing its own Porsche-based sports cars for more than 40 years and has developed a reputation for producing powerful super-fast creations ‘unrivalled’ both in terms of performance and build quality, says the German brand.

The current range consists of the RTR, RGT, Turbo Florio, CTR3 Clubsport and 3800S. Each car is capable of exceeding 200 mph. RUF has recently added carbon-fibre to the classic-bodied SCR as well as full carbon-bodied Ultimate models.

The traditional but potent RCT Evo, Turbo R and R56.11 models continue to provide enthusiasts and collectors alike a modern RUF take on the desirable Porsches of years gone by.

RUF also provides a bespoke service for Porsche owners searching for a high quality re-build or restoration of RUF and Porsche classic cars, drawing upon highly qualified engineers and resources at the factory in Pfaffenhausen.
