List: Cars Can Do 0-60 within 5 Seconds and Cost Less than $40,000

For car consumers, some are focusing on interior spaces/convenience/daily drive practicability; some may prefer the fun-to-drive factor; and some may gauge their preferences on other aspects. This article is for those who want to get the quickest acceleration performance with lower budget.

If you have noticed the engine compartment of the ATS-V (shown below), you will see it is more than enough to accommodate a V8, since the 3.6L twi-turbo V6 engine is sitting almost 100% behind the front wheel axle.
