I go with D.

"civil damages for cars" is wrong. it's not for the cars but for test-driving those cars.

And E is wrong since it's not for having cars (which were test-driven without their odometers connected) that it was fined but for test-driving these cars.

a) Out: "$16 million for car" does not make sense
b) Out: "it" has no clear referant
c) Out: "its" has no clear referant
d) Out: awkward.

The best answer is E.

D over E because it is much less wordy. Pay $ in damages for (v~ing) is idiomatic.
