The Fastest Track Cars for Less Than $35K: Window Shop with C/D

This week, we revealed the results of our annual Lightning Lap track event, which puts the hottest new vehicles of the day through the stress test that is Virginia International Raceway (VIR). This got the Window Shop crew thinking: For $35K, which used car would get us around VIR the quickest today? Ideally, we’d want to find something that could turn a lap in under 3:04.0, the current Lightning Lap record for sub-$35,000 vehicles, set by a 2016 Camaro V-6 1LE.

Contributor John Pearley Huffman, who was a little under the weather this week and not his shouty self, selected a 464-hp hellion: a primo Cadillac ATS-V sedan.

Window Shop with Car and Driver

Sports sedans have always occupied a special place here at Car and Driver. Our annual 10Best awards almost always include at least one fun-to-drive four-door, and our collective memory looks back fondly on the most legendary sedans in the respective histories of BMW, Alfa Romeo, Audi, and many others. So in this episode of Window Shopping, we set out to find the best used sports sedans for sale on the internet for a price cap of $15,000.

Our group of four C/D staffers plus contributor (and Road & Track columnist) Jason Cammisa came up with a diverse selection of Italian, Japanese, American sedans. There was some dispute over what actually defines a true sports sedan, and we think you’ll enjoy the discussion. Check out the episode and let us know what you’d like to see from future Window Shop episodes going forward.
