Top 100 "Grip Kings" - fastest cars around skidpad 2023

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.

This list is limited by available data and new vehicles will be added as new data arrives.

I would be very interested in seeing the top 300 to see what some normal cars pull on lateral 's so I could maybe make an informed purchase on a affordable car

The 2019 Corvette ZR1 gets 1.24g in Edmunds testing https://youtu.be/QJ0QnAHeux0
Info is false. Also, 2015 Corvette Z06 managed a 1.2g on the skidpad, courtesy https://www.autoblog.com/amp/2014/10/01/2015-chevy-corvette-z06-0-60-quarter-mile/

my g force redouts must be incorrect in my veloster n cause i've taken multiple turns that read over 1.2 g's and haven't even had the tires try to break free from the road yet.

What about the Alfa Romeo Guilia AWD 2.0 4 cylinder version? I test drove it and it handled amazing. Not sure how much faster the quadrafolio is.

Activa_v6  3y ago

according to Citroëns brochure for the Xantia V6 Activa it has a lateral G of 1.2g. And stating the fact its still moose test champion since 1999 it shows it isn't a lie

just hit 1.2 in the 2014 boxster. perfect road, tire and weather conditions.

ive seen a GT3 RS exceed 1.3+g on a regular basis.

The C7 corvette has a very low center of gravity (17.5"), which is the lowest measured by car and driver of any production car. Low cg coupled with wide tires for Z06/Grand Sport/ ZR1, 285/30/19 front and 335/27/20 rear, results in excellent lateral and deceleration grip. The numbers do not lie!!
