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.
Top 100 "Grip Kings" - fastest cars around skidpad 2020
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.

Vette zr1 did 1.24, becoming along with the gt3 rs the grip King at 4:12

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!!

Civic Type R, 1.04 g, if I am not mistaken

There's no AWD car in the top 10... Pretty funny :D

What about the teslas? Every electric website says their the tops in cornering? I know they could drive in a straight line but all these Ev guys say they can handle like a vette?
Enzo 1y ago
This wouldn't be weighted or something? Chevys take 5 of the Top 10. BS!

Radical SR8 has 2.2g of lateral force

The Gs registered depend a lot on the mechanical grip in a steady state, which could not be the same in a slalom or at 200kmh when the downforce is already doing is job.

Nothing seems right here.

You must be on crack. GM - best suspension, best components and best R&D? Get a grip. The only reason Corvettes do well on these crappy tests is the ultra-wide tyres they have fitted.

Not a surprise to see GM cars dominating the top of this list. Best suspension, best components, best R&D, best tires. No stock production car is going to catch the ZR1 any time soon, the manga-ride suspension GM has in their vehicles is the best ever put on a vehicle period. You can also look up the best braking distances ever recorded for production vechiles and see GM dominate the top of that list as well. Amazing when a $75k Camaro can top cars that cost 3-5x as much in almost every performance category.

the article said top 100 grip kings on skidpad , I only see 70 , Where’s the rest ?

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

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?
