RUNGE CARS

When visiting Christopher Runge's website, one is greeted by his company's philosophy and vision: 'The Runge RS is everything a late 1950's racer should be. Beautiful curvaceous body design flows throughout, giving way to fully functional duct and louver work. The design pulls from the RSK and Spyder racers blended with Maserati and Ferrari styling cues. The Runge RS is available both as Spyder and Coupe configurations. The 2-seat cockpit sports car utilizes a steel tube frame, mid-engine design and 4-cylinder power plant with options over 250HP'.

Runge Cars began in a rural Minnesota barn by Christoper Rünge, a former professional snowboarder. The company Christoper Rünge built specialize in producing handcrafted, bespoke automobiles. A lifelong passion for the automobile and more specifically post-WWII German design grew as Christopher owned and modified several Porsche vehicles over the years. In 2011 he embarked upon a new journey, to hand hammer his own aluminum-bodied car. The goal was not to build a replica but capture an era through a simple yet beautiful design. Every Runge vehicle s sheathed in aluminum polished so deeply its surface reflects like a surgeon's tray. Each commission is designed to customer specifications and extremely unique. Executing traditional coachbuilding technique with bodywork that is hand-formed of aluminum over a body buck. The metal is at the end of the process fitted to the "Superleicht" (super light) aluminum tube form. Christopher Rünge is truly continuing the tradition of the handcrafted, bespoke automobiles that we no longer have around as we did back in the day.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The one-off Runge RS010 offered here, was designed and constructed between 2017 and 2019, and commissioned by the consignor, a Mid-Western collector of sports, racing and special interest automobiles. RS010 features a full steel tube frame and a potent 2.3-liter, 195-horsepower flat-four mid-mounted engine mated to a four-speed "Longbox" transmission, which puts cruising speeds in fourth gear comfortably at 80-plus mph. Interior controls and toggle switches are taken from 1950s aircraft, and a clock from a Soviet MiG jet is situated in the dash. The cockpit is even insulated and sound-deadened, with 12-volt electric air conditioning, making the drive very comfortable. The RS010 weighs about 1,350 pounds, about half the weight of an average midsize sedan. After completion Runge RS010 was shown and the prestigious collector car show; The Quail – A Motorsports Gathering, and at the popular Monterey Jet Center Party. The unique and custom made Runge RS010 has appeared in numerous media outlets, including The Rake, Bloomberg, and has of course gotten many hits and followers on social media. Runge RS010 is registered and titled as a 1960 Runge RS Coupe and has covered very few miles since it was completed. It is offered with photos of the construction process and a lovely tool kit made to match the theme of the car. With its unique design and construction, staggering performance and handling, Runge RS010 is literally like nothing else on the road and a deserves close inspection, and the emotions to run free, to be fully appreciated.
