General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Bugatti Veyron 16.4

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
Bugatti Veyron 16.4

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 fully independent suspension
Bugatti Veyron 16.4

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

4.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Bugatti Veyron 16.4

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.

5. less CO2 emissions

596g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.

5. longer wheelbase

2.71m

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. lower coefficient of drag

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.

Best

Nissan GT-R (2014)

0.26Cd

4. faster acceleration (0-200)

7.3s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-200 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1. larger engine size

8l

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.

Best

2. higher maximum torque

1250Nm

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.

Best

Hennessey Venom GT (2014)

1566Nm

3. more horsepower

1001hp

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

Best

Hennessey Venom GT (2014)

1244hp

4. more cylinders

16

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.
