General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Ferrari California T (2014)
Porsche Boxster GTS

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

Porsche Boxster GTS

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 air suspension

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.

4.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
