1993 Porsche RUF (964) RCT

This very special Porsche belonged to none other than Alois Ruf Jr, the boss of RUF Automobile GmbH, and became his personal car in 1997. It was used as the basis for a revolutionary conversion he had developed that would combine a Turbocharged 964 3.6 engine with four-wheel drive. The car remained in Alois Ruf's collection until 2007, when it was sold to a UK collector and enthusiast. Finished in Schwartz Metallic, the paintwork today looks stunning and the grey full leather interior is presented in superb condition.

Estimate (£): 115,000 - 130,000
