V10 Excursion, lifted on 44" boggers should do the trick.

If it has track suspention she's not going to want to drive it...

BMW is one of the few brands who figured out automated manuals before 2012. You'll have to look to the VW/Audi to see any other dual clutches that are any good. Otherwise the only options for automatics are torque converters.

Really any car is trackable if you dont plan on racing it in a class, and just want seat time.

Otherwise I say M5 of sorts.

Just found this. It's pretty much stock but has the speed cloth and no moon roof.

So not true. I could dial out the rebound and compression in my Motons and it was more than civil. It was the solid mounts that made my car dumb. The only thing she ever complained about was the loudness of the exhaust and the no windows.

Not true either. Although seat time is key I want seat time in something that pushes my reaction times.
