Reviews: Top Gear’s top five track day lightweights

  1. BAC Mono

    £124,255, 280bhp, 206lb ft, 0-62mph 2.8secs, vmax 170mph, N/A mpg, CO2 N/A g/km

    It’s made by some men in Cheshire. It will make you feel like Ayrton Senna. And it really doesn’t matter if you have no mates, they’re not invited anyway.

  2. Ariel Atom

    £30,572, 245bhp, 154lb ft, 0-62mph 3.2secs, vmax 141mph, N/A mpg, CO2 N/A g/km

    It changed how we think about track-day cars, and nearly tore Jeremy’s face off. Now in its fourth generation, it’s still at the top of this list.

  3. Caterham 420 R

    £30,330, 210bhp, 150lb ft, 0-62mph 3.8secs, vmax 136mph, N/A mpg, CO2 N/A g/km

    New 420 R is Caterham’s mid-ranger, above the 360 and below the manic 620. Still light, fast and nimble. And still nowhere to keep a dog.

  4. Lotus Exige S

    £54,500, 345bhp, 295lb ft, 0-62mph 4secs, vmax 170mph, 28mpg, CO2 236g/km

    The last one was as raw as sashimi. This one’s more grown up, and now has a supercharged V6, but can still spot an apex from a mile off. Lotus still knows its onions.

  5. Radical RXC

    £94,500, 380bhp, 320lb ft, 0-62mph 2.8secs, vmax 175mph, N/A mpg, CO2 N/A g/km

    Contrary to the Le Mans looks, the RXC coupe is easy to get along with. Still rabidly fast, of course, but supple too. Expensive way to be the fastest at a track day.
