The team’s opinion

We discover the incredible journey of Alois Ruf, who distills his love of the automobile with fury. As the pages turn, we discover a person who never wanted to be like everyone else, a childhood dream that never really ends. Who would have thought that Pfaffenhausen, a small town in Bavaria, would over time become a holy land, a land of exceptional automobiles. Each vehicle stamped with the three letters is an incentive to rack up the kilometers, with rhythm and pleasure.

This book is an invitation to leave your job at La Défense and embark on a thrilling journey. But not just any trip. The kind of trip that takes you to remote, forgotten, abandoned places with just one goal: to satisfy your automotive dream.

A real goldmine for all Stuttgart enthusiasts! All that’s left is to find a place for it in the living room.
