As RUF Automobile makes its entry into the North American market, many enthusiasts wonder whether RUF cars are legal in the US. The answer is yes, with some important caveats. First, RUF vehicles sold in the US fully comply with federal safety and emissions regulations. Complying with regulations means they can be registered and driven legally.

However, since RUF cars are highly specialized, individual models may need additional testing to meet specific state and local regulations. As such, prospective RUF owners should consult with local authorities to ensure their vehicles comply with all relevant regulations.

The cost of a RUF automobile varies greatly depending on the specific model and customization options chosen. RUF Automobiles are exclusive and high-performance vehicles and therefore are expensive. The cost of a RUF can range from hundreds of thousands to even millions of dollars. It entirely depends on the model and features selected.

For example, the RUF CTR Anniversary edition, a modern take on the iconic 1987 Yellowbird, has a starting price of $1.2 million. Meanwhile, the RUF SCR, which features a 510 horsepower flat-six engine, has a starting price of around $800,000. RUF owners can also choose from a range of customization options, which add to the overall cost of the vehicle.
