RUF Automobile GmbH and publisher Waft have collaborated on a limited run book titled “RUF” which is available now for purchase. The book is divided into two sections – “Alois and Friends” which covers Alois Ruf, the man behind the machines, and “Yellowbird and Friends” which covers the 37 RUF models produced to date.
Waft, a husband and wife publishing duo, created the book using archival photography as well as original images and text. Two versions of the book “RUF” were created – “The Limited Edition,” a hardcover version limited to 911 copies, and “The Very Limited and Personalized Edition,” which is finished in authentic Pepita Ruf seat fabric over a hardcover, custom embroidered with the RUF logo and buyer’s name and is limited to 356 copies. Combined, the two parts include 588 pages of content written in English.
“We are a family business driven by a passion for great cars and lifelong friends,” said Alois Ruf, owner of RUF Automobile GmbH. “This book captures that passion well and is finished to the same standard as our cars, with quality materials and insightful research and writing. We are honored that Waft put this book together and hope everyone enjoys the stories and history of our brand.”
