Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Chevrolet Corvette Z06 (2015)
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)

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

Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)

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 fully independent suspension

Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)

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

Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)

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. longer basic warranty (years)

3yrs

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. longer drivetrain warranty (years)

5yrs

4yrs

The drivetrain warranty covers parts of the car such as the engine, transmission, driveshaft etc. This is usually longer than the basic warranty. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

4. longer wheelbase

2.71m

2.46m

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).

Engine

1. higher maximum torque

861Nm

440Nm

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

2. larger engine size

6.2l

3.4l

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

SRT Viper (2014)

8.4l

3. more horsepower

625hp

475hp

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

Best

Hennessey Venom GT (2014)

1244hp

4. more cylinders

8

6

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)
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)

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
