      The type R won because it was made as a track car and made to handle well with great turning ability and breakaway speed coming off a turn. I have a new 2019 type R. Definitely handles well. Very good breaks coming out of a turn

      Exclusivity puts me down for the LC500. Civic is too damn ugly.

      The Civic R beats a lot of sports cars, including the 911 through the twisties.

      I love Honda so much. Their ingenuity, engines, handling and styling is unmatched in my opinion.

      I would take the LC, for the V8 grunt. And looks so nice.

      Best FWD at the moment... not by the looks... but it seems it is a very fun car, and that's why i would choose it.

      Dear Sir Chis Harris (as I so dub-step thee), you are my very fave car reviewer - you combine real driving chops with a great sense of entertainment for me, the common man. Party on, Sir Chris!

      Lexus LOOKS ways better.. A brick is a still a brick wither it's fast or not. 2 doors are always more sexy then 4doors.

      The LC500 isn’t a performance car... why not race an RCF instead?
