Top specs, facts and figures

General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (2014)
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)

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 rear-wheel drive
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (2014)
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)

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.

3.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (2014)
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)

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 fully independent suspension
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (2014)
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)

This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.

5. less CO2 emissions

350g/km

289g/km

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

6. longer basic warranty (years)

3yrs

4yrs

The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.

3. lower coefficient of drag

0.3Cd

0.29Cd

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.

1. higher maximum torque

690Nm

440Nm

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.

2. larger engine size

6.3l

3.4l

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.

1244hp

4.Has Stop-Start system
Ferrari F12 Berlinetta (2014)
Porsche 911 GT3 (2014)

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.

5. better fuel economy (highway)

17.7l/100 km

8.9l/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.
