"RUFs are built from unmarked Porsche bodies and chassis. When a chassis arrives, RUF builds their own independent work into the car. Because RUF installs many of their own-made parts, the company is recognized as a manufacturer by the German government." same with the engines, they only buy 10% of the engine parts, the rest are designed and manufactured by RUF mostly out of titanium. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VEx61MUveVk
