Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013)
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 a petrol (gasoline) engine

Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)

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.

3.Has fully independent suspension
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013)
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.

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.Has four-wheel drive
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013)
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.

6. 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.

Engine

1. more cylinders

8

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.

2.Has a turbocharged engine
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013)
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.

3. larger engine size

8l

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.

5. higher maximum torque

1250Nm

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.

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.Has a rear-view camera
