To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' Monterey event, 24 - 25 August 2018. One of the 29 original CTR Yellow BirdsHighly original throughout, never crashed or restoredOnly 52,200 km from new Please note that Internet bidding is not available for this lot. Interested parties that are unable to attend the sale may register to bid by telephone or place a commission bid online at rmsothebys.com. The RUF CTR rose to fame as a result of a test done by Road & Track magazine that was published in their July 1987 issue. Organized to determine the worlds fastest car, the test would be held at Volkswagens Ehra-Lessien test track. The assembled assortment of automobiles was truly a whos-who for the class of 1987. However, amongst the likes of a Ferrari Testarossa, a 288 GTO, and a Porsche 959, it was the RUF that made the biggest impression. Perhaps Peter Egans article itself describes the CTRs ludicrous performance best: I held onto the built-in roll cage as Paul Frere accelerated onto the track, and I wasabsolutely astounded by the acceleration (no easy feat after a day in Ferraris, Lamborghinis, etc.). At each gearshift the Ruf went slightly sideways, only to straighten for an explosive burst of speed to the next gear, more like what I imagined a top-fuel dragster to be than a perfectly drivable road car. As Paul hit 5th gear, we blasted past the first timing clock at 311.9 km/hstill accelerating from a standing start!At the test itself, the particular CTR that was being used was painted bright yellow by RUF, which quickly earned the nickname of Yellow Bird by both RUFs own staff and the journalists in attendance. Not only did it stand out due to its sheer performance, but it was the only yellow car in attendance at the test. In a sea of reds, silvers, and blues, the RUF stuck out in more ways than one and earned itself a fantastic reputation as something almost otherworldly. For those looking for the ultimate supercar, the RUF CTR Yellow Bird was undoubtedly the best.The 10th of the 29 originalCTR Yellow Birds originally built by RUF, chassis no. 10 was originally built for RUFs distributor in Switzerland, where it was delivered new on 10 February 1989. The car was instead sold to a German client who was waiting on his own CTR but was growing impatient with his order and purchased this car instead while waiting for the one he ordered to his specifications. Upon the delivery of the second car, he kept both. Finished in black and fitted with RUFs trademark five-spoke wheels, it boasts a grey interior with black Recaro bucket seats and a roll cage. With only 52,200 km on its odometer, RUF confirms that the mileage is original and that the car has never been restored or damaged throughout its life, remaining in wonderfully original condition. But even more remarkable than that jump to the Rufs 211-mph top speed was that Phil, Paul, and Alois Ruf all agreed that the yellow car was undergeared. We could make it go faster, Ruf said . . . In the coming years, RUF proceeded to go faster andfaster. For RUF, the CTR Yellow Bird and its inclusion in Road & Track catapulted the company international fame, cementing its place in automotive lore as a tuner and manufacturer truly in a league of its own. With the article, RUF had captivated its audience, made up of not only prospective customers, but a generation that could not quite put their hands on the car, yet due to their young age, the car would be a forbidden fruit and something to aspire to for years to come. Concluding the article, discussing varying acceleration times of the cars in the test, for Egan, there was no forgetting the sheer speed of the CTR: But for us Americans, as Ruf had correctly divined, nothing quite surpassed the magic of going 200 mph. And beyond.Thirty years after the test, nothing has changed.Please note that an import duty of 2.5% of the purchase price is payable on this lot if the buyer is a resident of the United States.

  • Auction: 5th Sep 2018 - RM Sotheby's - London Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' London event, 5 September 2018. Displayed on RUFs stand at the 2013 Geneva Motor ShowOne of only nine Rt12 Rs builtSingle ownership and 17,000 km from newAlways serviced by RUF in PfaffenhausenTruly an exceptional example in every regard Based on RUFs venerable Rt12, the Rt12 R dialled up the performance even more, creating an automobile that could outrun almost anything on the road. Not that the Mezger-based 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged flat six-cylinder engine producing 650 bhp in the Rt12 and 685 bhp in the Rt12 S was not enough, the Rt12 R added another 52 bhp, along with a single-mass flywheel, coil-over suspension, integrated roll cage and its trademark carbon fibre front fenders, rear decklid and wing. Needless to say, the performance figures were astounding. Weighing in at 1,495 kg, from a standstill, a sprint to 60 mph would take just 3.3 seconds, leading to a tremendous 230 mph top speed.Built by RUF over late 2012 and early 2013, this Rt12 R wasfinished new in RUFs own colour called Midnight blue pearl over a contrasting black interior with leather and Alcantara bucket seats and blue contrasting stitching. Fitted with carbon-ceramic brakes and OZ centre-lock racing wheels, the car is equipped with a number of desirable options, including four-wheel drive, the carbon-fibre package and front axle lift system. Following its completion, the car was shown at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show alongside a CTR3 Clubsport and a handful of other RUF models in production at the time.Shortly following its appearance at Geneva, the Rt12 R was delivered to its first and only owner in its native Germany. During his ownership, he drove the car regularly, always returning it to RUFs facilities in Pfaffenhausen for services, for which invoices are available on file. In 2015, a rear-view camera was installed to help improve visibility in low-speed manoeuvres, which was carefully integrated into the existing PCM system.Today, the car has only been driven 17,000 kmfrom new, has never been involved in an accident and presents wonderfully throughout, showing a few signs of use here and there from normal road use. This Rt12 R checks all the right boxes, and for the modern supercar fan looking for something different, there can be nothing better.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/LF18.
