This particular example was the first of that series. It was delivered to its American owner in late 2017 after being featured on the December 2017 issue of Excellence. The car is finished in Irish Green with a black leather and Alcantara interior. It was the first 'Limited' to be fitted with full carbon-fiber bodywork, and had a 2,950 lb overall weight. It came equipped with a RUF-modified air-cooled and twin-turbocharged/intercooled boxer six cylinder engine offering 620 horsepower and 553 foot-pounds of torque.

The RUF bodywork included special front and rear fascias with vents ahead and behind of the wheels, and a fixed rear wing to reduce lift. Inside, there were a pair of leather and Alcantara-trimmed carbon fiber bucket seats, lightweight door cards, and extensive carbon fiber trim. There is a fully integrated roll cage to enhance the occupant's safety. Amenities include air conditioning, an entertainment system, and electric windows.

The suspension was modified with GT2 rear bushings, stiffer engine-cradle components, and large 15-inch ventilated and cross-drilled with six-piston calipers. In the back were 13.8 inch slotted and ventilated discs with four-piston calipers. At all four corners were light-alloy wheels and 19-inch Michelin tires.

Currently, this RUF has 140 miles on its odometer.
