Motor Trend recently took ten of the hottest cars that are available in the USA and pitted them against each other to find out which car was the best handling ride in the land. The rides rounded up for the shoot out included a Honda Civic Si, Mazdaspeed3 GT, Mini Cooper S John Cooper Works GP, Mitsubishi Evo IX MR, Honda S2000, BMW 335i coupe Sport package, Porsche Cayman S, Lotus Exige S, Corvette Z06, and the Porsche 911 GT3.

By anyone’s count this is a heady group of rides from the mundane to the exotic. All the cars were tested in their stock rubber as well. I tell you on looks alone, the coolest of all ten rides in my book is the Lotus Exige S, I love that car in the orange and black. Makes me wish I had gone to med school so I could get closer to it that a web page.

At the end of the day the Porsche 911 GT3 came in as the best handling car (beating out the Cayman S by a mere 1.9 points in Motor Trends tests) in the land with a massive 1.69g of peak lateral acceleration. The 911 GT3 is a sweet looking ride, but I’d still rather see that Lotus in my garage. REad teh full story over at Motor Trend.
