I will have to say the Corvette. $45K gets you 0-60 in 4 seconds.

08+ Vett.. BEAST and for the money, NOTHING beats it.
a 335i w/ chip don't even come close to a stock Vett - and they are easy and cheap to mod too.

Spec Miata or pick up a used Elise/Exige and throw one of the many available FI options on it.

FORD claims the Shelby GT 500 Mustang has the highest HP/$ ratio of any car out there assuming you're not paying the high dealer mark ups of $10K to $15k that most are paying to get the car. They claim low 4's 0-60, and heard with a few mods it can do much better.

I guess they failed to mention it's also the most weight/hp/$$ as well.

Should I say Nissan Skyline 0-60 in 3.3 seconds for $42K? You are mixing your cars up.

The Corvette LT1 is $47,000 with 0-60 in 5.3 seconds.
The Z06 is $72,000 with a much better 0-60.

I would say Nissan GTR.... just so I can have all my performance under warrenty. For less than a Z06 too
