As 2017 bids us adieu, Autocar has gathered an eclectic team of the best sports cars this year had to offer in order to crown this year’s champion.
The best of the best list for those past 12 months includes cars like the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, Aston Martin DB11 V8, BMW M4 CS, Caterham Seven 420R Donington Edition, Honda Civic Type-R, McLaren 720S, Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon, Mercedes-AMG GT-R and Porsche 911 GT3.
Being the fastest around a track isn’t what this is all about, with the journos instead trying to find out which one does the best job at being a sports car both on the road and on a circuit.
Therefore, things like chassis balance, grip, power delivery, steering and damping quality are all taken into consideration before deciding which one performs the best as a driver’s car.
It will be certainly interesting to see how cars like the Honda Civic Type R and the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio compare against the McLaren 720S and the latest Porsche 911 GT3, don’t you agree?
