General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Ferrari 458 Italia (2014)
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
Ferrari 458 Italia (2014)
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
Ferrari 458 Italia (2014)
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
Ferrari 458 Italia (2014)
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.
5.CO2 emissions

307g/km

275g/km

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

Dimensions

1.height

1.21m

1.2m

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

4.53m

4.51m

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

1.49t

1.33t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.width

1.94m

2.09m

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

2.65m

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).
6.Has vertically-opening doors
Ferrari 458 Italia (2014)
McLaren 650S
Vertically-opening doors are useful for when parking in tight spaces, and are aesthetically pleasing.

Speed

1.top speed

325km/h

333km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

3.4s

3s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
3.acceleration time (0-200 km/h)

10.4s

8.4s

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

Engine

1.maximum torque

540Nm

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

4.5l

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

562hp

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.fuel economy (highway)

9.7l/100 km

8.5l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
6.fuel economy (city)

19.7l/100 km

17.5l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A lower fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.

Features

1.Has a rear-view camera
Ferrari 458 Italia (2014)
McLaren 650S
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
