Auction Block: Rünge RS010

Jan 11, 2021

Category: Rides

Rünge Cars is a boutique American auto-building operation, headed up by Christopher Rünge and headquartered out of a small shop in Minnesota. Despite being a one-man operation, Rünge has completed an extensive number of builds, though the upper midwest outfit’s most celebrated work is almost certainly the Rünge RS010.

Built between 2017 and 2019 and requiring over 2,000 man-hours to complete, the RS010 is constructed around a full steel tube chassis that’s been adorned in thoroughly-polished aluminum bodywork. The car’s outward appearance takes ample inspiration from Le Mans-style endurance racers from half-a-century ago while the interior is loosely modeled after that of an aircraft, with a domed windshield, an array of aviation toggle switches, and a genuine clock from a Soviet-era MiG jet. Weighing in at only 1,350lbs—about a third the weight of the latest Porsche 911—the one-off Rünge is powered by a mid-mounted hand-built 200hp Rünge 2.3L flat-four that’s mated to a four-speed “Longbox” manual transmission. Riding on 15” Tecnomagnesio wheels shod in modern Pirelli rubber, the car also boasts Koni adjustable shock-equipped front and rear independent suspension and hydraulic drum brakes throughout. Previously featured on Jay Leno’s Garage, the Rünge RS010 is now due to cross the auction block at Bonhams’ upcoming Scottsdale Auction later this month where it’s expected to fetch between $225,000 and $250,000.

Purchase: $225,000+
