Car stats

So I heard that the stats for the cars come from the EVO magazine,
But a huge amount of the cars, especially the American ones, have never been tested by Evo.
So can someone explain where do the car stats come from?

Is this just some kind of prediction?

    lol some of the stats are just plain wrong.
    Out now so can't really compare, but I recall the Camaro Convertible being the V6 performance with V8 power stats

    Until fairly recently it was ‘grip’ rather than ‘handling’.

    An e class caterham has low grip, but incredible handling, so the change of name has kind of ruined the stat really.

    I think they wanted to make it simpler in some way.

    Hey yeah I didn’t even noticed the terminology change. What you said makes so much more sense. This isn’t a quality of life change but another thing to nit pick on. Change it back Hutch
