The interaction between steering, springs, shock absorbers and tyres is a dark art that carmakers spend millions trying to master.

This article isn’t only about cars that handle like go-karts, corner like they’re on rails and [insert other journalistic cliché here]. We’ve also included a few that like to go sideways – or suppress cornering forces altogether. Let us know if you agree.
