Posted by Colin Wood on Feb. 23, 2021, 10:46 a.m.

Since you can drive virtually anything on the famed Nürburgring, why not try running an old Lincoln? According to the video’s description, the Lincoln lapped the track in a blistering 11:33—only slightly off the pace of the current record of 5:19.55 set by a Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo Le Mans Prototype.

The E90-chassis BMW 3 Series may be one of the best performance bargains on the market today. Starting with the already powerful N54 engine, see how BimmerWorld transformed a used 335i into a seriously capable, street-legal track machine—so fast, in fact, that it beat both the Toyota GR Supra and Honda Civic Type R.

If you thought going fast for only $2000 was challenging, try doing it for half than that amount. That’s exactly what competitor John Brown did.

For a total budget of $1042, he fielded a V8-powered 2003 Lexus GS430 at our $2000 Challenge. The icing on the cake? The homemade plywood front splitter. Presented by CRC Industries.

We learned what it’s like to drive one of these extreme machines, how these cars compare to those that we drive on the street, and how someone can progress from karts to pro racing. Watch along to hear his answers.

Sure, both teams may have built Datsun Roadsters to compete in our $2000 Challenge, but both teams certainly built them much differently: where one team dropped in a turbocharged KA24DE engine, the other team fitted its Datsun body over a Formula 440 car. Presented by CRC Industries.
