Legendary Porsche tuner turned supercar manufacturer, RUF Automobile, has recently announced the opening of its new North American headquarters in Miami, Florida. The facility will be located at The Concours Club, a luxurious automotive country club that offers its members an array of services and amenities, including a driving circuit with FIA-certified features and virtual coaching, private garages and storage, fine dining at its Verge restaurant, an events center designed by Pininfarina, lifestyle concierges, and more.

Set to open in summer 2023, the new RUF U.S. headquarters will serve as the company’s main North American import and distribution hub, providing vehicle sales, service, parts, track driving experiences, and private events. The location is strategically situated within the Miami-Opa Locka Executive Airport, allowing RUF customers to arrive by aircraft and be on the track within minutes. The facility will fully utilize The Concours Club’s amenities for welcoming clients by appointment only and allowing them to experience RUF vehicles on-site.

RUF’s decision to open its North American headquarters in Miami is a significant milestone for the company, given the city’s status as a global destination and its thriving car culture. For Alois Ruf Jr., director of RUF Automobile GmbH, the decision to establish their US home base in Miami was a natural one. He said, “When I first came to the U.S. in 1970, I was amazed by the incredibly active car culture. Now, after 53 years, we are thrilled to be opening our U.S. home base in Miami, where we can share our passion for motoring with our North American customers. The Concours Club was the perfect fit.”

Victor Gomez IV, RUF North America President, also shared his excitement about the new headquarters, saying, “Establishing our U.S. operations in a global destination city like Miami out of The Concours Club is a perfect base of operations. It offers a sophisticated, world-class resort for our clients to visit the RUF Automobile showroom alongside exceptional amenities. The Concours Club presents an incredible opportunity to engage with RUF customers in a very special way.”

RUF Automobile is known for its engineering excellence, authenticity, passion, and above all, the thrill of driving. The company has a rich history of producing exceptional supercars, including the iconic RUF CTR “Yellowbird,” which became the first production car to break the 200-mph barrier in 1987. In 2017, RUF celebrated the Yellowbird’s 30th anniversary by unveiling the CTR Anniversary, a modern version of the twin-turbo CTR. The company’s latest release, the SCR, is a naturally-aspirated supercar based on the same carbon-fiber monocoque as the CTR Anniversary and weighing only 2,756 pounds. The 2022 SCR features adaptive suspension and is currently in production.

The opening of RUF’s North American headquarters at The Concours Club in Miami is a significant development for the company and its customers. With its state-of-the-art facility and luxurious amenities, RUF is well-positioned to provide exceptional service to its North American clientele. As the company continues to produce some of the most exciting and high-performance supercars in the world, its new headquarters in Miami will undoubtedly be a hub of innovation and passion for years to come.
