What we are looking for

  • Driving prowess counts more than anything else here. The best sports cars must accelerate, brake and handle better than their rivals in order to stand out and win.
  • However, it isn’t just about being quickest around a track; we’re looking for cars that involve the driver in the process on the road, too – so much so that they’ll be grinning from ear to ear every time they get behind the wheel.
  • In fact, in this category, smiles come before miles to the gallon or how many suitcases can come along for the ride, so a shortage of either will be forgiven.
  • Having said that, no one likes throwing their money away, so a degree of financial sense still counts.
