Does this count? I was celebrating my youngest's 30th birthday (how can that be?) at an autocross event with his brand new 2018 Audio TT RS. The 400 hp and all wheel drive on this small of a car was phenomenal. Interior was reminiscent of an Audio R8, really nice. Any yes, he had the best time in his group (OK, so he had one of the best cars for an autocross, but still .... guess all the video game stuff paid off after all).

Here is my "Baby". Jaguar XE 3.5t. 2017, These could be special ordered as a 3.5t 6cyl supercharged custom built at less than $43K in 2017. Comes with included prepaid service intervals and roadside assistance for three years, nice value there. These cars have bodies composed of 75% aluminum/magnesium too. Jaguar simply dropped the SAME ENGINE as the f-type into this sedan in 2017, and de-tuned it to 340HP for the non-"S" entry level. I knew this coming in, and immediately tuned it back up to safe performance levels for less than $1000.00 (reversible during service intervals to maintain warranty.)

Mods are: VelocityAP.com ECU reprogram to 416 Hp (Pulley coming soon, boosts to 450HP)
Dropped/Sport Springs (Velocity AP)
ALP Radar detection and Laser Defeat System, Custom installed. (Cant tell you how many saves I've had!)

Wish I could install some Goldenear's in this thing, but the Meridian stereo from the factory is OK.

These run 0-60 in 4.5 seconds at stock 340HP, I'm running real close to 4's at 416HP.

Top speed I've hit so far is only 156, but I ran out of straight. :-) (We have COTA here in Austin). Even dropped she did want to take flight some over 140 , therefore the big whale tail on the worlds fastest sedan, the XE Project 8.

Drove the heck out of Jaguar provided XE-s at autocross at COTA at the "Jaguar Experience" accompanied and coached by Professional Jaguar race car team drivers, what an awesome experience! Jaguar is VERY serious about speed. They now have the fastest sedan in the world, at any cost.

Best car I've owned. You can buy some closeout 2018's here in Austin for 30K with the smaller engine, with full warranty. Jags don't have to be expensive.

A good case has been made by Johnny Leiberman (Motor Trend) and others that this car knocks over the former "King" of driver's cars, the BMW 335I Sport.

I've left far more expensive 4 door rides in the dust, for instance the Lexus GSF costs over 85K and stays in my review. The BMW M3 starts unloaded at $70K and is neck and neck with my car performance -wise. And I could almost buy two Jags for the same price, one for me, one for the wife!

Had '11 Kawi ZX-14 for a number of years too, damm thing was FAST, but I got rid of it before I killed myself. I rode with a good friend who tubocharged his ZX-11, out in the back roads of Texas, what a blast!
