Nice. #15 out of 50, if it based on a ranking system.

There should have been a "d" or "m" for the damp/moist track when they tested it.

I think what's really crazy is look at the cars that are from the last 5 years on that list:

(2008 and up)
Vauxhall Ampera
Dacia Duster
Ferrari FF
Alfa Romeo 8C Spider
Jaguar F-type V6S
Mercedes Benz CLK Black
Aston Martin V12 Vantage
McLaren 12C Spider
Lamborghini Murcielago LP-670SV
Range Rover
Ford Focus ST
Nissan GT-R
Lexus LFA
Ferrari 458

For the most part that is some damn good company

And not 1 JDM 90's sports Icon?

No Supra?
No Mr2?
No Rx7?
No NSX?
No Skyline
No Silvia?

Not saying they should all be on their, but jesus, a ford focus and none of these icons?

The Focus Euro version has always been a very competent car and in some euro markets even had an AWD version. However, I do agree that I am shocked that the cars you listed aren't there.
