General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (2015)
McLaren 650S
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

McLaren 650S
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 a petrol (gasoline) engine

McLaren 650S
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 rear-wheel drive

McLaren 650S
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.

Dimensions

1.height

1.24m

1.2m

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

4.49m

4.51m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.width

1.97m

2.09m

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

2.71m

2.67m

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).
5.Has vertically-opening doors

Vertically-opening doors are useful for when parking in tight spaces, and are aesthetically pleasing.

Engine

1.maximum torque

861Nm

678Nm

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.engine size

6.2l

3.8l

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.
3.horsepower

625hp

641hp

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

8

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.
5.Has a turbocharged engine
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (2015)
McLaren 650S
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.

Features

1.Has in-car system

McLaren 650S
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.
