Must See: Modern 1950's Racer Inspired Masterpiece
The traditional coachbuilding technique Runge employees in its basic form consists of hand-forming aluminum panels over hand-made body bucks before attaching the panels to a "Superleicht" or an aluminum tube form.
Bonhams is now offering car collectors the opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind Runge automobile - RS010. The designing of this particular 1950’s racer inspired car began in 2017 and its construction was concluded by 2019.
For those that see a pre-200-horsepower rating as too little, remember the RS010’s lightweight design means that the engine is only carrying 1,350-lbs.
The interior is every bit as unique as the exterior. It features a perfect mix of burgundy leather and polished aluminum. The dash draws inspiration for 1950’s era aircraft and actually features a clock from a Soviet MiG jet.
From the listing on Bonhams, the original sale price of the car is unclear but the Runge RS010 is expected to sell anywhere from $225,000 to $250,000 at the Scottsdale auction on January 21, 2021.
