General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (2014)
Lexus LFA (2012)
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 F12 Berlinetta (2014)
Lexus LFA (2012)
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 F12 Berlinetta (2014)
Lexus LFA (2012)
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 F12 Berlinetta (2014)
Lexus LFA (2012)
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.

Dimensions

1.height

1.27m

1.22m

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

4.62m

4.5m

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

1.63t

1.48t

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

1.9m

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

2.72m

2.6m

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).

Speed

1.top speed

340km/h

325km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-200 kilometres per hour.
The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

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.
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

371hp

552hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an 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.
5.Has Stop-Start system
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (2014)
Lexus LFA (2012)
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.
6.fuel economy (highway)

17.7l/100 km

14.7l/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 in-car system
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (2014)
Lexus LFA (2012)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
