Here at The Lego Car Blog we’re not usually fans of German tuning houses. This is because for the most part they seem to take some really good cars, ruin them, and then charge twice the price for the resultant mess. One of the exceptions though is Ruf, who have been building ultra high performance cars since the 1970s.
Ruf base their designs on Porsche chassis, but all the fabrication is done by themselves (rather than simply bolting on ‘uprated’ parts), so their products have Ruf VINs and thus Ruf are classified as a car manufacturer in their own right. Which does mean that our title is factually incorrect.
Anyway, this incredible Model Team recreation of Ruf’s monster CTR3 Clubsport shows that Lego builders can show the same attention to detail in their work as Ruf themselves. It also continues the recent return of one of the Lego community’s most revered builders, Firas Abu-Jaber. Firas’ beautiful CTR3 is available to view on both MOCpages and Flickr, and you can see Firas’ Top 5 creations according to Headturnerz by clicking here.
