Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (2019)
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)

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
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (2019)
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)

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
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (2019)
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)

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
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (2019)
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)

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

2yrs

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. higher maximum torque

970Nm

470Nm

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.

Hennessey Venom GT (2014)

1566Nm

2. larger engine size

6.2l

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

755hp

520hp

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 Stop-Start system
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (2019)
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)

A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.

For example

Dodge Challenger (2015)

6.Has a turbocharged engine
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 (2019)
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)

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
