As 2017 bids us adieu, Autocar has gathered an eclectic team of the best sports cars this year had to offer in order to crown this year’s champion.

The best of the best list for those past 12 months includes cars like the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio, Aston Martin DB11 V8, BMW M4 CS, Caterham Seven 420R Donington Edition, Honda Civic Type-R, McLaren 720S, Mercedes-AMG E63 S Wagon, Mercedes-AMG GT-R and Porsche 911 GT3.

Being the fastest around a track isn’t what this is all about, with the journos instead trying to find out which one does the best job at being a sports car both on the road and on a circuit.

Therefore, things like chassis balance, grip, power delivery, steering and damping quality are all taken into consideration before deciding which one performs the best as a driver’s car.

It will be certainly interesting to see how cars like the Honda Civic Type R and the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio compare against the McLaren 720S and the latest Porsche 911 GT3, don’t you agree?

If the answer is ‘yes’, get yourself comfortable and prepare for 40 minutes of high-speed driving, along with the usual insights, on the video linked below.

Caterham Seven Lays Down Record Number Of Donuts In 1 Min 10

Former track cyclist Sir Chris Hoy looked pretty good on four wheels as he set a new donut world record, marking Caterham Seven’s 60-year anniversary.

In order to successfully complete this “60 second donut challenge”, Hoy had to spin the car around as many times as he could in under a minute.

“Everyone knows I spend a lot of time in cars these days but I’ve never had much practice donuting,” said Hoy. “But when someone tells me there’s a record up for grabs that certainly focuses my mind. During the attempt I just kept going, putting everything I’d learnt into practice.”

The Olympic legend also said that when you’re in a spin, you lose sense of time, and that he was shocked to learn he managed to do as many as 19 donuts in 60 seconds, reports The Sun.

As for his Caterham of choice, it was obviously the 620R, which has a power-to-weight ratio of 620 HP per tonne and can hit 60 mph (96 km/h) in 2.79 seconds.
