Ruf rocks up at Mon­terey

CTR 2017 and CTR chas­sis 001 make US de­but at Car Week

Total 911 - - Update -

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.”
