General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition Roadster
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 Spider (2013)
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition Roadster
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 rear-wheel drive
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition Roadster
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.
4.Has air suspension
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition Roadster
Air suspension offers a smoother ride than the traditional steel spring suspension. It is also often adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower it based on the type of driving you are doing.
5.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition Roadster
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.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.53t

1.74t

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.
2.Has vertically-opening doors

Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition Roadster
Vertically-opening doors are useful for when parking in tight spaces, and are aesthetically pleasing.
3.height

1.21m

1.26m

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

1.94m

2.08m

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

4.53m

4.64m

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

Speed

1.top speed

320km/h

320km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

Engine

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.Has a turbocharged engine
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013)
Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT Final Edition Roadster
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.
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.
4.horsepower

570hp

591hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
5.fuel economy (city)

0l/100 km

19.9l/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 (highway)

0l/100 km

9.3l/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.
