German manufacturer RUF Automobile is celebrating the past 80 years of service with the release of a film titled, “RUF, Love at the Red Line.”
RUF started life in 1939 as a general service garage, and after stepping into the world of automotive production, it eventually began working on Porsches in 1963. Today, RUF is known for its reworked Porsche models, producing classics such as the CTR Yellowbird and the Carrera GT-based CTR3 Clubsport model.
The celebratory film includes appearances from many notable names in the Porsche world, from car designer Freeman Thomas and Porsche modifier Rod Emory of Emory Motorsports, to the Gran Turismo producer Kazunori Yamauchi, collector and RUF owner Bruce Meyer, and many more.
RUF director Alois Ruf has said in a press release that, “this film pulls back the curtain. We want to share with the world that it has taken the work of hundreds and the passion of many more to get us where we are today. This is for the employees, the customers and the fans who helped turn our vision into a reality.” Watch “RUF, Love at the Red Line” above.
