2018 RUF CTR3 Clubsport

Alois Ruf may have cut his teeth as Germany’s pre-eminent Porsche customizer, but the CTR3 is something altogether different.

At first glance, its Porsche roots are obvious — there are the twin ovoid headlights and the curvy haunches. Yet the CTR3 is more Porsche-inspired than Porsche-based.

Instead of the Porsche underpinnings that governed the design of every RUF car prior, the CTR3’s platform was developed in conjunction with Canadian supplier Multimatic, the same company responsible for production of Ford’s new, Read More

1954 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible

By the early 1950s, Cadillac had finally displaced cross-town rival Packard at the summit of the American fine car market.

In celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Cadillac and its General Motors corporate parent, the Motorama-inspired Eldorado crowned its model range for 1953.

Equipped with Cadillac’s state-of-the-art 331-ci V8, the Eldorado was offered only one way — fully loaded. A 1953 Cadillac sales brochure declared the Eldorado as having been “dramatically styled by Fleetwood to capture the heart of all Read More

Exotic Street Cred on a Budget
