The CTR Yellowbird is a sports car produced by RUF Automobile GmbH. It made its debut in Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 4 despite first appearing in Wangan Midnight Volume 1 as Tatsuya Shima's Blackbird.


Nicknamed the "Yellowbird" due to its impressive yellow color, this legendary vehicle chiseled out numerous records as a commercial vehicle in the circuit time attacks of its day. The weight (engine) is mounted behind the drive axle, and it has intense traction during acceleration. It has a few maneuverability peculiarities because its weight balance is considerably closer to the rear, but the driver can savor its characteristic cornering feel when making use of accelerator control.


This may be WMMT's "most expensive" car as in real life, even at the time of its launch in 1987, it already costs US$223.000, although it could vary depending on whether it's directly bought from Ruf or converted from a standard 911.
