I was doing some house-cleaning on my main hard drive, and found this shot from 2011. The US RUF dealer was a customer of mine, and one weekend, we rolled some cars out front for this shot -- just for grins, mostly.

I got up on a fork lift and shot down at the parking lot. We couldn't do anything about the Mazda and the commercial truck in the back corner, as the business next door was closed.

There are FOUR Carrera GTs, a Ferrari 512TR, a Murciélago, an Enzo, a RUF CTRII Sport (the fastest car in the photo), a Ford GT in Gulf livery, a RUF BTR and a few other knick-knacks.

NICE!

The 512 is a 512M, improved performance, but not as clean looking as the TR. Of the three versions, I think the Testa Rossa is last in looks, and the mosted dated looking.

Back when M/A World HQ was in TX I lived a short 5 min drive from the Ruf Store. My drool probably still stains the floors.
