Fastest Lap Times at the AutoGuide Test Track
Share this Article

There’s no better place to test the true performance of a vehicle than on the track, which is why we often head to our local road course for comparison articles of everything from sports cars to hot hatches. But which car is fastest?

Now into our third year at the same facility, we’ve compiled a list of every car we’ve timed at the 1.86-mile AutoGuide Test Track* and listed them below. We’ll continue to update this list as we test more cars and be sure to make a BIG DEAL when a new car tops our list.

* Because you want to know, the track is actually Toronto Motorsports Park or Cayuga. While there are no elevation changes, the track provides a good mix of speed, handling and braking ensuring a balanced mix of vehicle performance in a controlled environment.

** Timed during our 2014 AutoGuide Under $30,000 Performance Car Shootout. The track was hot and greasy during testing, leading to slower than usual lap times.

    I’d love to see the Lotus Evora and the new Exige V6.

  • Colum Wood

    Jeremy: Sadly the new Exige isn’t available in North America. We’ll see what we can do about that Evora though!

  • Fenderaddict2

    Nice time in the Boss. Best time for me is a full 7 seconds back.

  • Alfie

    The GT-R Track Edition will kill that R8’s time.

  • Robby G

    Have you driven that same track?

  • PermaPlate

    No surprise to see the Audi R8 at the top

  • Hal

    I can’t believe that 911 was almost as fast as the R8. I have to think the 911 Turbo would be even faster than the Audi. GO PORSCHE!

  • Josh

    The “Fastest Lap Times” list is a good tool to use when considering a new car purchase. There is, however, one element missing that would make it a great list, and that is the price of each car tested. Yes ?

  • Sri J

    I wouldn’t bet on it.

  • ColumWood

    You make a great point. This list is still in its infancy. We’ll try and update it with a better layout in the future; something similar to our Real World Fuel Economy page. http://www.autoguide.com/auto-news/2013/10/real-world-mpg-fuel-economy-database.html

  • John Engelman

    I can’t believe that the 2014 Corvette is only .4 of a second slower than the R8, and FASTER than the Porsche. And the R8 cost how much compared to the Corvette. The new ZO6 will crush them all……..

  • John Engelman

    ….and the ZO6 will crush the GT-R.

  • Sim_ism

    Wow, nice to see that my old 1998 Integra Type-R is still hangs in there very nicely, considering it only had a 1.8 L, 195HP engine…

  • Rickers

    I would.
