What becomes of high-dollar custom exotics 30 years after they meet the world?
Most are not in nearly the flawless, as-new condition as these two. That is a sure thing.
Nor are there many box-fresh 911s of any kind from that era. Let alone with completely outrageous bodywork and spoilers?
These two are almost twins – the white Avalanche a hardtop and the red Cyrrus a ragtop.
Although they are twins in many ways, they each actually wear totally unique executions for their nose and whale tail designs. The straked intakes along the doors and into the rear axle were 1980s shortcode for hot shi**!
Their tuned boxer engines from RUF are quite similar: both packing six exhaust pipes and around 150 more horsepower than any 911 Turbo from the factory in that era.
Each should bring upwards of $200k and they are sold individually.
