    horsepower and handling

    134)The British manufacturer Ariel has been building automobiles since 1898. It is a very small car company, and it makes a very small car, the Atom 2, But despite it size, the Atom 2 has enough horsepower and handling to impress any car enthusiast....

    What does "handling" here mean"? a mechanical part or operation?

    Re: horsepower and handling

    Handling refers to many things not associated with speed and power: steering, cornering, stability, etc.

    Re: horsepower and handling

    "enough handling" doesn't make sense.

    Re: horsepower and handling

    "Handling" can be good, bad, terrible, great, wonderful etc, but you can't describe a car as having "enough handling". The handling could be "good enough" to achieve a required turn or some other manoeuvre.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
