Watch: Yellowbird RUF gets absolutely sent around the 'Ring
Possibly the most erratic and coolest Nurburgring lap ever
I'm in a little bit of Porsche obsession at the moment. I can't stop watching classic Porsche videos, especially from the air-cooled era. I re-stumbled upon my all time favourite video on the internet featuring the flightless Yellowbird.
Ruf are basically Singer before Singer were cool. They made the CTR which is a Porsche 911 930 with a huge injection of batshit craziness. It has insane accelerations stats for the era getting from 0-60mph in about 3.6 seconds.
The video in question is the magical Ruf being absolutely sent around the Nurburgring on a sunny day. At no point in the video is the driver not giving it everything. Almost every corner exit is accompanied by a spoonful of oversteer.
He's also doing it in the classic German combination of loafers, white socks and Clarkson jeans.
Have a watch here:
