The ‘new’ yel­low­bird takes flight

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Leg­endary Porsche tuner and re­storer Ruf is re­viv­ing its most fa­mous car, the Yel­low­bird.

Ruf is bring­ing back the smash hit from its back cat­a­logue to cel­e­brate the car’s 30th an­niver­sary. The orig­i­nal Ruf CTR (to give it its proper name) was a twin-tur­bocharged and heav­ily-mod­i­fied 911 built in 1987 and made fa­mous by the Nord­schleife on-board lm Fasz­i­na­tion on the Nür­bur­gring. The brand-new ver­sion was re­vealed at the Geneva Mo­tor Show on March 7, fea­tur­ing a be­spoke chas­sis. Ruf prom­ises a pro­duc­tion run of 30 cars, with a price of around £650,000. De­liv­er­ies to cus­tomers are ex­pected to be­gin in 2018.
