Yesterday we asked you what the greatest new track day cars on the market were. As always, there were a ton of responses, but here are the answers we saw repeated the most.
The BAC Mono is one of the most hardcore street-legal cars we've ever seen. As the name suggests, it has a single center seat, not unlike a Formula race car. Everything is controlled via the steering wheel, and it's predictably wild to drive.
This year is the last year for GT350 production, so you best get your order in quickly. That 526-horsepower flat-plane crank V8 isn't going to rev itself past 8000 RPM, is it?
The Atom was one of the first cars to catch the wave of modern-day track toys with its open cockpit and tube-frame body. It's still sold today, and it's still incredibly quick.
How do you make one of the greatest track cars even better? Give it a supercharger and a sequential gearbox, of course. The 311-horsepower 620R is the most manic Seven in Caterham's lineup, so you better be ready for it to bite back when you get behind the wheel.
The new Miata isn't only great on the street—it makes for a solid track day car as well. Choose the Club package, and you get better suspension and a limited-slip differential. You can further option a set of sweet BBS wheels and bigger Brembo brakes.
The KTM X-Bow is what happens when a motorcycle company decides to start making cars. It's an open-cockpit mid-engine pocket rocket with wild looks that's incredibly fun to drive.
As as Lotus still sells cars in the United States, you bet they'll be on this list. The Evora 400 is more than competent enough to be flung around on a circuit from sunrise to sunset without skipping a beat. Also, it has four seats, so your friends and family can join in the fun too. Just remember to bring helmets.
Factory Five, the same people behind some of the best Shelby Cobra replicas around, has its own car too: The 818. It's a kit car that uses a boxer-four from a Subaru WRX, mounted behind the driver powering the rear wheels. It weighs virtually nothing, and makes for one solid track machine.
Chevy hit the nail on the head with the new Camaro, and the track-minded 1LE trim takes it even further with a retuned suspension, bigger brakes, and an electronically controlled limited-slip differential. It's a muscle car that can truly do it all.
