RUF's new CTR is a 225 mph throwback to the Yellowbird

It's built almost entirely of carbon fiber, and it'll go like a bat out of hell. RUF couldn't have made a more desirable car.

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.
