RUF SELLS STAKE TO GENII
Lotus F1 owner Genii pumps money into celebrated builder of exotic Porsche-based specials
Well, the engineering expertise of Ruf has, over the years, been well proven. The Yellowbird was hitting 200mph-plus before the big boys started doing it as a matter of course, and with forays into self-built electric Porsches, V8-engined 911s and its own 750hp CTR 3 supercar there's no lack of ambition.
"Today the brand is also connected to younger generations through its appearance in number one selling driver computer games, opening the potential to new buyers all across the world," says Gerard Lopez in the press release confirming the deal. "The high performance vehicle market is going through a fundamental transition with emerging markets and alternative propulsion solutions paving the way for RUF's future."
See confirmation that the first homegrown Middle Eastern supercar, the W Motors Lykan, will use Ruf power at its heart for where this is going.
Interesting times for the future then. But if you're from the old-school of supercar dreamers this flatnose Ruf Turbo for sale at Specialist Cars Of Malton might be a more immediate way of enjoying that famous need for speed.
