Top 100 "Grip Kings" - fastest cars around skidpad 2018

Skidpad is a circular track with fixed radius where cars are tested for maximum sustained lateral acceleration.

High lateral acceleration (measured in meters per second squared or Gs - 1G = 9.8 m/s²) is indicative of high cornering capability and good handling characteristics in general.

Wide, grippy tyres have big influence on skidpad results.

Notice the top 4 cars all have runflat tires.

It's not well nown but that's because the runflat technology actually IMPROVES grip. For some reason only GM takes advantage of it.

You might think it would make grip worse but it's actually the opposite. Check out the description in this link: https://m.tirerack.com/tires/description.jsp?tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=Pilot+Sport+Cup+2+ZP

Correction the top 5 have runflat tires. They use different tires but all are runflats.

Yes but run flats are heavier and are noisy and bad for ride quality. They also attract much more tire punctures for some reason. I had like 5 punctures in 3 years. And later after 5 years of normal tires, zero punctures. Never going back to runflats
Oh and run flats are more expensive

If the test is made with fixed radius some cars would perform better than other even if they're not better because the distance between F and Rear axles would make a difference in which is the best speed to achieve the maximum lateral grip. A car like the 4C would have better grip in medium speed corners on the other hand a Ferrari 488 would have better lateral grip in high speed corners. Shord wheelbase perform better in smaller speeds and long wheelbase perform better in high speed. So the entire list is irrelevant. Some cars on the end of the list might be capable of pulling greater lateral grip if the test is made in a greater radius circle.

What about the Alfa Romeo SZ with 1.2 g?

if the Fiat 124 is so high up - where's the Mazda Miata?

I also think the Alfa Romeo QV is way to high up the list to.

Citroen Xantia Activa was famous for his 1.2 G's but not in list.
