    Thanks! The Yellowbird looks fantastic. The classic 911 narrow body with the RUF modifications so well integrated to the shape that make it look better than the original. It must take some balls to drive this car fast.

    That's some insane drivingSmiley I wonder what time the Yellowbird would achieve at the ringSmiley


    Re: RUF Yellowbird - fantastic!!

    I think Roser,the RUF test driver, did it in 8.05. This is only as fast as a Cayman S today, but in 1987 it was an unprecedented time.

    While the time may only be the same as a Cayman S, I assure you there is nothing similar about the experience Smiley
