Hi Folks,

Finally got my baby home late last night. New/improved version includes Euro front, 3-piece RUF wheels and new tires, RUF steering wheel, RUF aluminum shift knob, factory-spec frame, repaint, and clear bra.

Well, a picture paints a thousand words, so without further adieu.

Enjoy.

Kin,

The 90 degree tech orientation places red-line at 12 O' clock position. When racing, you keep the revs as close to peak power/torque as you can. This tech orientation allows the driver to see the revs with minimum eye movement away from the road in front. RUF likes to mount the tech. this way in their cars.

Here is a better pic of the rotated tech.

Jim,

Yes, I'll be there with my RUF on the 18th. Looking forward to meeting you and your Sterling Grey beauty.

She looks great Pong! I would have to say that I liked the black rims a touch better; they made the sinister nature of the car shine through more. I can't wait to see her again, it was a real treat the first time.

How about a write up of the drive comparison to the e39 M5?
