Picking the 2016 Motor Trend Best Driver’s Car!

This is the eighth running of BDC, Motor Trend’s annual Best Driver’s Car competition powered by Mothers—and the editors agree this was the most difficult contest yet. Join Motor Trend Senior Features Editors Jason Cammisa and Jonny Lieberman and SCCA Hall of Fame race car driver Randy Pobst as they blast their way through this year’s 12 hottest cars. The crew tests the cars on the road then heads to Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca to test them on the track. Then, of course, they choose a winner. This year’s competitors include the Acura NSX, Aston Martin V12 Vantage S manual, Audi R8 V10 Plus, BMW M4 GTS, Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE, Dodge Viper ACR, Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R, Jaguar F-Type SVR, McLaren 570S, Mercedes-AMG GT S, Nissan GT-R, and Porsche 911 Carrera S.

  1. Congrats McClaren. I’d personally rather own 2 GT 350r and a pocket full of money for gas and tires. Nice to see Ford climb that list 👍👍 Great vid motor trend!

  2. best for Billionaires.

  10. my favorite car, the best drivers car will always be DODGE VIPER ACR.

  11. What he salid about The astro Martín Was true

  12. The best drivers car has to be one that is fun to drive on public roads, and as you said, these are all too fast for that. If you want the best drivers car, you have to look at the BRZ or the 230i. Front engine, manual transmission, rear wheel drive, and excellent lightweight chassis’ with near perfect weight distribution.

  13. I think if I hear him complain one more time about the VIPER im going to revoke his man card!!  Just like Giles told Randy if ya cant handle the car get out of it and let someone else drive it.  Just because its a real car and doesn’t have near as many electronic nannies on it to hold their hands and its a real car they complain.

  14. I just noticed the Winding Road Racing sponsorship on the Spec Miata. Awesome YouTube channel right there.

  15. I wish they would stay in a price range on these. A $500,000 car better be a hell of a lot better than a $70,000 car. How about best drivers car that is under 70 grand. IE somewhat affordable. Then do another one over $70,000. That gets you 2 and then best of the best. See I got you 3 shows instead of 1

  16. every year nissan GTR can we try the Z 2017 as the so call cheap car?
    Now we have new ZL1 & Grand Sport Stingray will you have both or still 1 from each brand?
    I’M a Z, Camaro & Cayman fan by the way. I’ve only seen Carlos drive the sport package 370z years ago.

  17. Put 5,000hp on a Mustang and the Biggest brakes. in the end, it’s a Ford Mustang. LOW Cheap piece of trash no matter how you put it…

  18. your an idiot for choosing a mustang over a mclaren

  19. Where is the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio

  20. Mustangs and most other muscle cars are nearly ruined because there is no exclusivity. They are everywhere!

  21. motor trend can you please make a 2017 moTor trend best drivers car

  22. I’ve always had a soft spot for mustangs, my neighbor had an old 69′ boss 429 when I was a kid, got to ride in it one time; been in love with them ever since. Used to own an 05 till I hit a deer roaring 90 mph down a back road, now I got an old 96. Was in my buds 2014 model year gt500 as he ate up a hellcat a couple months back. And as fast as that car was, thats all it was lol FAST; but it was a boat of a car.

    Quite interested in checking out the new gt350r sometime. Any donations? XD

  23. I genuinely like every single car in this comparison, and they are all amazing for one reason or another, but for whatever reason, that Porsche REALLY pulls on my heartstrings, I love it!

  24. I love motor trend reviews but I’m getting kinda sick of all the arguing. It’s non stop and quite tiring to watch. Randy is the best because he’s focused on the cars rather than arguing about "mines better than yours"

  25. repeatedly spam the 6 key on your keyboard while the video is playing

  26. Nice!

  27. How much is the m4 gts in Australia?

  28. Nice shoutout for the Creation Museum.

  32. The Shelby has a "Check engine" light on…

  33. British engineering coming out on top once again

  34. Speaking of soulless cars 🚗 the 570s .Lamborghini huracan would kill the 570 s for dead

  35. gtr vs m4

  36. Um no the McLaren shouldn’t win, because it’s price point isn’t reasonable at all. Shelby should win

  42. Got it. That was a Viper. Haha
