Lotus Exige S Roadster (2014): 32 facts and highlights

1. faster acceleration (0-100)

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
4s
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 2.5s

2. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.
233km/h
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 414km/h

3. better fuel economy (highway)

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.
7.6l/100 km
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013): 0l/100 km

4. more cylinders

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.
6
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 16

5. Has a turbocharged engine

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. better fuel economy (city)

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.
14.5l/100 km
Ferrari 458 Spider (2013): 0l/100 km

7. 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.
10.1l/100 km
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015): 3.1l/100 km

8. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
345hp
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 1001hp

9. 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.

12. less CO2 emissions

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
236g/km
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015): 72g/km

13. 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.
3.5l
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 8l

14. higher Euro NCAP rating

The European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) carries out safety tests for new vehicles, providing an overall rating for each car’s safety. It covers different areas such as safety for an adult occupant, child occupant or pedestrian.
5
BMW M6 Convertible (2015): 5

15. greater power-to-weight ratio

The power-to-weight ratio is a measurement of the performance of a car, based on the amount of power its engine can produce per kg of weight.
224.8hp/kg
Lotus Exige S Roadster (2014): 224.8hp/kg

16. more valves

An intake valve allows the air/fuel mixture to enter the combustion chamber. An engine with more valves tends to increase performance.
24
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 64

17. higher maximum torque

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.
400Nm
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport (2013): 1250Nm

18. shorter length

4.08m
Smart Passion Cabriolet (2014): 2.65m

19. width

1.8m
Nissan Murano CrossCabriolet (2014): 1.21m

20. height

1.13m
Lotus Exige S Roadster (2014): 1.13m

21. longer wheelbase

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).
2.37m
Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead Coupe (2014): 3.32m

22. weight

1.17t
Renault Megane Coupe-Cabriolet 2.0 CVT (2014): 1.63kg

23. 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.
0.41Cd
Lexus IS 250C (2014): 0.29Cd

24. Has a petrol (gasoline) engine

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.

25. Has rear-wheel drive

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.
