Well known German Porsche tuning company RUF Automobile Gmbh has established a UK-based office and showroom for the first time
For the first time ever, Porsche tuning company RUF Automobile has announced the opening of an official UK office. Formed in conjunction with father and son car brokerage team Richard and Mark Sekula, the new office will join RUF’s growing international network that includes the USA, Canada, Singapore, Japan, China, Thailand, Taiwan and Chile.
Small-scale tuning company RUF has been tweaking Porsches to supercar-dwarfing levels since 1977, reaching international stardom with the CTR Yellowbird and ‘that lap’ of the Nurburgring in 1987.
Currently RUF’s range includes the RTR, RGT, Turbo Florio, CTR3 Clubsport and 3800S – all of which can crack the magical 200mph mark. In addition to new models, RUF can undertake almost any modification, rebuild or restoration for any Porsche owner – covering mild performance upgrades to full-on 1000bhp turbo builds.
Mark Sekula co-Director of RUF Automobile UK commented: ‘Having known RUF and the Ruf family for many years now we are very familiar with the engineering principles and ethos of the company. Knowing what RUF is capable of producing, we are very excited to be a part of the expanding international presence. The UK has tremendous potential for RUF cars and it will be our task to establish a sound base for both pre and post-sales support for customers in this country’
