General info

1.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
McLaren P1
Pagani Huayra (2011)
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
McLaren P1
Pagani Huayra (2011)
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
McLaren P1
Pagani Huayra (2011)
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.
4.Is a hybrid car
McLaren P1
Pagani Huayra (2011)
Hybrid cars run on a mixture of petrol (gasoline) and electric power. They offer several benefits over traditional petrol-powered cars. For example they produce less CO2 emissions, and due to their fuel efficiency they are often cheaper to run.

Dimensions

1.height

1.19m

1.17m

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

4.59m

4.61m

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

1.95m

2.04m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
4.Has vertically-opening doors
McLaren P1
Pagani Huayra (2011)
Vertically-opening doors are useful for when parking in tight spaces, and are aesthetically pleasing.

Speed

1.top speed

350km/h

370km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.

Engine

1.maximum torque

978Nm

1000Nm

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.horsepower

890hp

730hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
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.
4.Has a turbocharged engine
McLaren P1
Pagani Huayra (2011)
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.

Features

1.Has in-car system
McLaren P1
Pagani Huayra (2011)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
2.Has regenerative braking
McLaren P1
Pagani Huayra (2011)
Hybrids and electric cars use regenerative braking, which captures the kinetic energy produced by braking and converts it into electricity. This then charges the battery, effectively increasing the car’s fuel efficiency.
