Top Gear's top five track day cars

Enjoy the odd track day? You'll need one of these things

  1. Zenos E10 S

    £32,995, 250bhp, 295lb ft, 0-62mph 4.0secs, vmax 145mph, N/A mpg, 155g/km

    If the Ford Focus ST-engined E10 is anything to go by, British upstart Zenos will be around for a while yet. Actual windscreen makes it semi-usable on the road.

  2. Lotus Exige S

    £54,500, 345bhp, 295lb ft, 0-62mph 4.0secs, vmax 170mph, 28mpg, CO2 235g/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.

  3. Caterham 420 R

    £32,990, 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. Ariel Atom 3.5R

    £38,000, 310bhp, 169lb ft, 0-62mph 2.7secs, vmax 155mph, N/A mpg, CO2 N/A g/km

    It changed how we think about track-day cars. Now in its fourth generation, the Somerset lightweight is just getting better and better. Even better as a jacked up Nomad...

  5. BAC Mono

    £150,000, 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. It looks like a formula racer. And it really doesn’t matter if you have no mates, they’re not invited anyway.
