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 fully independent suspension
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
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 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.
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.
6.basic warranty (km)

80 000km

50 000km

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.

Dimensions

1.weight

2.04t

1.7t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.wheelbase

2.85m

2.73m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
3.length

4.9m

4.65m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
4.height

1.37m

1.17m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.width

1.92m

1.66m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.

Speed

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
2.top speed

249km/h

344km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
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.

Engine

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.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.
Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
4.horsepower

560hp

887hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.fuel economy (combined)

13.2l/100 km

3.1l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.

Features

1.Has regenerative braking
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
Regenerative braking captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity to charge the battery.
2.Has Bluetooth
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows you to easily transfer data between different devices, such as smartphones, tablets and computers.
3.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
4.Has smart key as standard
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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.
5.Has in-car system
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
6.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
BMW M6 Convertible (2015)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
