    I have been contemplating responding to this post. So,...FYI.

    I had a 1964 Corvair high performance model. It had the high HP engine and 4 speed. It had stiffer springs, anti sway bar in the front and camber compensater in the rear. I had wide racing tires, modified carburetors, headers, and dual exhaust.
    Weight 2,400 lbs.
    Top speed 115 mph
    Freeway driving @ 85 mph 32 mpg.
    City driving 26 mpg.

    The best part was that it was very nimble and responsive. This gave it a very high fun factor. I had it in a 4 wheel drift many times and never spun out. I beat the piss out of that poor car it was so much fun to drive.

    If you are looking for a pure driving experience, i suspect this might be the most fun street legal car on earth.

    BAC Mono $250k (roughly)

    [​IMG]

    Its effectively an F3 racecar that is legal on public roads. It will beat almost every supercar/hypercar on a track.

    Heres a BAC Mono (with not the best driver) beating a McLaren P1, which is wasilly one of the fastest production cars in the world.

    For 75k you can give most Super cars a run for their money.

    Ariel Atoms are sick! The BAC Mono gets even better track times than the Atoms, and thats saying a lot! I hear the Atoms are crazy loud though when you step on it, like painfully loud.

    I can actually afford the Atom if I could ever talk the Wife into it.
    Hell,If I got rid of all my other toys the Wife wouldnt have a say in the matter.

    You could probably score a slightly used one for a reasonable price.

    You would likely never encounter another car on the road that is faster around a track than that Atom.
