Classic cars and most advanced limited series, vehicles from the US, UK and UAE – we selected 10 vehicles that are optimally suited for race track days (with several of them also authorized to drive on public roads).
Modern supercars are getting too complicated and heavy, and they can no longer provide that pure track driving experience that every car enthusiast is thirsting for. There is also a psychological factor to consider: speeding around the racetrack isn’t as fun when you are driving a car that will gain value only if it’s in a pristine condition with only a modest mileage on the odometer.
This is the reason why track day cars exist. The best examples are extremely simple, light and fast. They don’t have any unnecessary equipment, and the small paint chips or dead bugs splattered on their sides are thought to be battle scars that only add masculinity and – sometimes – value.
