If you have cash lying around, get a 1M.
The 135 would have been better than the 335, due to a weight advantage. However, need to be heavily modified (suspension, brakes, LSD and cooling). 1M could have been good, as it comes better prepared for the above quoted issues.

I am trying to stay away from stripping, roll cage etc. as I am not looking to truck the car around, I will be doing maximum of 10 days per year. To date my average is 5-6 days a year.

So the objective is to look for a track-oriented car (sports car), as opposed to a sporty car that needs modding.
SB, Terra, 6MT. Only a few mods here and there.....nothing extreme!
