Thumbs up Visited RUF and RWB shops in Taiwan (50+ photos)

On my recent trip to Taiwan, I was lucky enough to visit the RUF and RWB shops in Taiwan. They are amazing in person and I was like a kid in a candy store. Here are some photos to share, enjoy!

Great pics. Was that Nakai-San wearing his orange hat?

If RUF can figure out a way to install some HD cameras in the rear so I have a rearview mirror I'll be right over to pick up that CTR3

check it out 2:25

Thanks guys!

The original RWB shop is in Japan and the shop in Taiwan "GMS" that I had visited is an authorized RWB dealer but Nakai-san still have to do all the mods if a customer orders one. Here is a video of the making of that red RWB "Emily"; The making of GMS

The yellow car is actually a car from the company called "Radical" in UK; Radical Sportscars / UK / Home

I'm not sure how much the RUF CTR3 ClubSport cost in the US but it costed $41,500,000 NTD or $1,338,710 USD in Taiwan.

There's talk Porsche may do a 2nd run of 918 but if that falls through I'll settle for a CTR3...
