Maserati GranTurismo: 23 facts and highlights

1. faster top speed

The fastest speed that the car can reach.
285km/h
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 447km/h

2. faster acceleration (0-100)

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
5.2s
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 2.5s

3. 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.
4.2l
SRT Viper (2014): 8.4l

4. 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.
460Nm
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1566Nm

5. shorter length

4.88m
Lotus Elise (2014): 3.82m

6. width

2.06m
Lotus Elise (2014): 1.72m

7. height

1.35m
Gumpert Apollo: 1.11m

8. 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.

9. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
405hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp

10. less CO2 emissions

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
330g/km
BMW i8 (2014): 49g/km

11. Has in-car system

An in-car system (eg. Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) gives you extra functionality, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.

12. 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.
10l/100 km
Lotus Elise (2014): 5l/100 km

13. weight

1.88t
Alfa Romeo 4C: 895kg

14. 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.
14.3l/100 km
BMW i8 (2014): 2.1l/100 km

15. 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.

16. greater cargo volume

A larger cargo area is more practical as it allows you to transport more things.
260l
Dodge Challenger R/T (2014): 459l

17. 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).
2.94m
Ferrari FF (2014): 2.99m

18. 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.

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 16

19. 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.
21.5l/100 km
Lotus Elise (2014): 8.3l/100 km

20. 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.

21. larger fuel tank

A larger fuel tank means that you have to stop to refill less often.
86l
Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport: 100l

22. bigger screen size

A bigger screen size for the in-car system provides a better user experience, and is easier to use whilst driving.
7"
SRT Viper (2014): 8.4"

23. smaller turn radius

The turn radius indicates the smallest circular turn a car can make. With a smaller turn radius it is easier to perform a U-turn in one attempt instead of having to reverse back and forth in order to turn around.
