General info

1.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Hennessey Venom GT (2014)
Lotus Elise (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.
2.Has fully independent suspension
Hennessey Venom GT (2014)
Lotus Elise (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.
3.Has rear-wheel drive
Hennessey Venom GT (2014)
Lotus Elise (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.

Dimensions

1.height

1.14m

1.12m

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

4.66m

3.82m

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

1.96m

1.72m

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

2.8m

2.3m

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

447km/h

204km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

2.7s

6.5s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1.maximum torque

1566Nm

160Nm

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.engine size

7l

1.6l

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

1244hp

134hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.number of cylinders

8

4

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 a turbocharged engine
Hennessey Venom GT (2014)
Lotus Elise (2014)
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.
6.fuel tank capacity

70l

40l

A larger fuel tank is an advantage because you have to stop to refill less often.
