Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 16

3. faster acceleration (0-100)

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

185Nm
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 1250Nm

7. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
206hp

11.2l/100 km
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013): 0l/100 km

10. better fuel economy (combined)

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.
9.8l/100 km
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015): 3.1l/100 km

11. larger engine size

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.
2.5l
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 8l

12. Has fully independent suspension

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

10.2m
Smart Passion Cabriolet (2014): 8.4m

17. lower coefficient of drag

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 economy.
0.29Cd
Lexus IS 250C (2014): 0.29Cd

18. Has ISOFIX/LATCH

ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
