Ruf rocks up at Monterey
CTR 2017 and CTR chassis 001 make US debut at Car Week
Ruf’s new CTR 2017 made its US debut alongside its famous CTR chassis 001 in a specially dedicated ‘Alois Ruf Reunion’ display. The seven-strong lineup of Ruf cars celebrated the decorated career of Alois Ruf Jr, who took over the company from his father in 1974.
Chassis 001, the original ‘Yellowbird’ currently owned by prominent car collector Bruce Meyer, won ‘Best in Class’ at the motorsport gathering at the Quail Lodge, situated in the idyllic Carmel-by-the-sea, California.
“We have thoroughly enjoyed our time here sharing our passion for the automotive hobby with Ruf owners and enthusiasts,” said Alois. “This is the first time that we’ve brought a Ruf vehicle to the United States since 2001, and we were overwhelmed by the reception. Bringing the all-new CTR to display and drive alongside Meyer’s CTR #001 was a fantastic experience.”
