Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

There's even a rescue hatch on the roof, similar to Audi's bigger R8 LMS racer.

If you tried to drive this on the road, not only would you get pulled over, you'd ruin the beautiful aerodynamics.
