Audi A8 L W12 (2014) vs BMW M6 Convertible (2015): 42 facts in comparison

1. Has a rear-view camera

A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.

2. higher maximum torque

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful car, and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
463Nm
Tesla Roadster: 10000Nm
678Nm

3. Has four-wheel drive

Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.

4. better fuel economy (city)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
18.2l/100 km
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013): 0l/100 km
15.7l/100 km

5. Has smart key as standard

A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.

6. better fuel economy (highway)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
11.2l/100 km
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013): 0l/100 km
10.7l/100 km

7. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
500hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp
560hp

8. 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.

10. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
374l
Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014): 3448l
459l

11. Has regenerative braking

Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.

12. Has a turbocharged engine

A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.

13. Has Stop-Start system

A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.

18. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
90l
Ford Super Duty F-250 XL (2015): 132l
80l

19. more valves

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

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 64
32

20. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.
209km/h
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 447km/h
249km/h

21. lower coefficient of drag

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel economy.
0.27Cd
Tesla Model X 75D (2016): 0.24Cd
0.33Cd

22. more headroom (rear)

More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
993mm
Ford F-150 SVT Raptor (2014): 1.94m
927mm

23. better fuel economy (combined)

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
