RUF – the limited one

RUF is a company that doesn’t need an introduction in Porsche circles. We can’t imagine a true Porsche enthusiast who is not familiar with the RUF CTR Yellowbird, or the RUF CTR. So far, RUF is the only company that tunes Porsches and turns them into another brand. RUF turns Porsches into RUFS… and brings them to another dimension.

So far, few literature existed about RUF or the cars they create. From now on, there is no more excuse not to know everything you need to know about RUF. WAFT is multiple award-winning independent publisher of high-quality books on car design and motoring culture. The 2-part  book “RUF – the limited one’ is the result of a close collaboration between both RUF and WAFT .

Sample page RUF – Limited Edition

Part 1 : Alois and friends. 

The tantalising story of Alois Ruf, his family, his company, his passion, his big successes and small defeats, his adventures, his vision, and a few secrets hardly anybody knew. With countless period pictures.

Part 2 : Yellowbird and friends.

 All the cars. Around 35 models, the one more performant than the other, including numerous period pictures and relevant technical details.

WAFT had full access to the RUF Automobile archives and dug out dozens of previously unseen photographs. The information in the book combined with the tremendous design, makes this book absolutely stunning. Just as cars created by RUF Automobile, WAFT stands for quality No compromises are accepted.

The book is available in 2 limited versions. “The Limited Edition,” a hardcover version  that is limited to 911 copies, an “The Very Limited and Personalized Edition,” which is finished in authentic Pepita Ruf seat fabric over a hardcover, custom embroidered with the RUF logo and buyer’s name and is limited to 356 copies. Combined, the two parts include 588 pages of content written in English.
