Pfaffenhausen Speed Shop – The RUF Gallery

If you love Porsches, you probably already know about the epic Porsche event Luftgekühlt. The Petersen teamed up Luftgekühlt for a brand new, two-part exhibit series that you will love.

The first special exhibition, called “Pfaffenhausen Speed Shop – The RUF Gallery,” will features nine bespoke supercars and restomod classics from German manufacturer RUF, including the famed 1990 RUF CTR Yellowbird.  That alone is worth the trip. But wait, there’s more. Other RUF goodies on hand include a 2012 RUF CTR3 ClubSport, a 2007 RUF Turbo R Cabriolet, a 2016 RUF Turbo R Ltd, a 2016 RUF Ultimate, a 1994 RUF RCT EVO narrow body, a 1994 RUF RCT EVO wide body and a 2015 RUF RT12R.

As usual, the design and display on the showroom floor of The Pete is impressive.

The second display, which is opening on Aug. 15, 2021, will explore the legacy of the legendary Porsche 956 and 962 models.
