Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)

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.

2.Has four-wheel drive
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)

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.

3.Has rear-wheel drive
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)

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.

4.Has air suspension

Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)

Air suspension offers a smoother ride than the traditional steel spring suspension. It is also often adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower it based on the type of driving you are doing.

5. longer basic warranty (years)

4yrs

4yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

3. lower coefficient of drag

0.33Cd

0.36Cd

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 consumption.

2. more horsepower

560hp

887hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.

3.Has Stop-Start system
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)

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.

4.Has a turbocharged engine
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)

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.

5. higher maximum torque

678Nm

540Nm

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.

6. larger engine size

4.4l

4.6l

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.

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets and computers.

2.Has a rear-view camera
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)

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.

3.Has height-adjustable seat belts

Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)

Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.

4.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
