1. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.
325km/h
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 447km/h

2. larger engine size

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.
4.5l
SRT Viper (2014): 8.4l

3. Has dual-clutch transmission

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.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 2.5s

5. higher maximum torque

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.
540Nm
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1566Nm

6. shorter length

4.57m
Lotus Elise (2014): 3.82m

8.5l/100 km
Lotus Elise (2014): 5l/100 km

19. more cylinders

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.
