Weekly Roundup 05/30/14

Pretty much all modern stuff in this weekly roundup (first of 2014 I might add!) I posted about a couple of them on our Facebook page,and slipped the last one in quietly.

Guards Red RUF CTR2: I posted this one late last week before our long weekend Memorial Day holiday here in the U.S. I originally thought this car belonged to the prominent Chilean supercar collector who has seemingly one of everything; all the Ferrari supercars, a Pagani Zonda 760RS, a Porsche 959 and a CTR3, with most finished in red.

But now I’m not so sure. I haven’t been able to find any info linking the car to South America and was going off a hunch because it does appear his CTR3 that I have in the registry is for sale via Autosalon Singen. Either way, I’m on it and will report back with more eventually. Check out the 2 period photos with the one current one from the mobile.de ad showing the green interior, which just doesn’t work with the Guards Red…not to mention the rug floormats aren’t doing the car any favors.

Guards Red RUF CTR3: I updated the red CTR3 that I have in the registry with current photos from its for sale page on Autosalon Singen. I have been contacted by another CTR3 owner who has confirmed the existence of two Guards Red CTR3s at this time. One is this particular car, which is/was originally commissioned and owned by the aformentioned Chilean collector. The unique options to this car are the Porsche airbag steering wheel with RUF hornpad and flat bottom, the matte gunmetal grey finished wheels, and finally, it is the only CTR3 I have seen that is not fitted with the perforated grilles that cover the wide slots on the rear clamshell engine cover.

Grand Prix White RUF RT-35 Roadster: As far as I can tell, this is the second open top 991-based RUF, the RUF RT-35 roadster. I quietly slipped this in because I haven’t been able to find any really good photos to credit to someone other than on Autogespot. But, these shots from the Geneva Auto Salon earlier this year from a photographer for AudiPassion will have to do for now. This model is finished in a subdued white with a black convertible top and what appears to be a Sand Beige leather and alcantara interior. Gustav from GT Board has a quick video walk around of the car showing dedication plate 06/35.
