9.Audi TT-RS $58,095
Audi has proven itself on the global stage with its LeMans victories, having won the past three 24-hours of LeMans, and winning 11 times since 2000. While the TT might not look like a race car, it is an established coupe and when Audi decided to give the little coupe the RS treatment, they went all out.
The TT-RS gets a turbocharged five-cylinder engine which puts out 360-horsepower. That power goes to all four wheels thanks to Audi’s quattro AWD system, and helps the TT-RS get to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds. The TT’s short wheelbase is a great handling feature, but thanks to an upgraded magnetic shocks system it’s even more lively around the track.
Want more for track-use? The TT-RS has performance rated 255/35 performance tires strapped to 19-inch alloy wheels. Then there’s the weight. The TT-RS weighs only 3,306 lbs, just 100lbs more than the TT-S coupe, even though it has much larger engine and brakes.
