Cars with most grip

Top 40 fastest cars with highest grip on skidpad. Updated August 2021.

Maximum sustainable lateral acceleration (measured in G-Force) is indicative of cornering ability and track performance.

Lateral acceleration is measured on skidpad - large area of smooth tarmac where cars can go around in circles at full speed, while maintaining constant turning radius.

Resulting maximum sustainable side-to-side acceleration, is the benchmark we are looking for. It is function of speed and circle diameter.

Cars that ship with track-focused, wide and grippy tyres, and feature wide track width and firm suspension, are ranking highest in this list.
