When it comes to the documentation of the automotive lifestyle, nobody does it better than Waft. The company has a surprising amount of editorial content in its archives, and now, it’s decided to honor one of the industry’s greatest performance vehicle manufacturers, RUF Automobile GmbH, with a new, limited-edition book.
The history of RUF dates back all the way to 1939, and, as such, it’s not abnormal to hear that this 520-page collection features some of the most awe-inspiring photos from the company’s past — a number of which are inherently rare. The assemblage is comprised of two separate parts; one, which focuses on the history of Alois Ruf, the son of the company’s owner, and its visionary director; and the other, an homage to the iconic Yellowbird, a Porsche-based platform that catapulted the company into the industry spotlight when it was released in 1987. You’ll be able to procure the book in two different limited-edition styles: the “Limited One,” and the “Very Very Limited One” — of which, the latter comes dressed in a personalized sleeve crafted from the company’s sought-after seat fabric. Head over to Waft’s website to pick one up for $305+.
