1. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.
295km/h
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 447km/h

2. larger engine size

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
5.9l
SRT Viper (2014): 8.4l

3. faster acceleration (0-100)

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
4.6s
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 2.5s

4. Has dual-clutch transmission

A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.

9. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
510hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp

10. Has rear-wheel drive

Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.

20. more airbags

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six as some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags and side curtain airbags.
4
Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 (2014): 8

21. more valves

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.
