General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
BMW Z4 Roadster sDrive20i (2014)
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013)

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 rear-wheel drive
BMW Z4 Roadster sDrive20i (2014)
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013)

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.

3.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
BMW Z4 Roadster sDrive20i (2014)
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013)

A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.

4.Has fully independent suspension
BMW Z4 Roadster sDrive20i (2014)
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013)

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

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.

6.Has four-wheel drive
BMW Z4 Roadster sDrive20i (2014)
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013)

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.
