General info

1.Has dual-clutch transmission
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
2.Has fully independent suspension
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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 four-wheel drive
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.
4.Has rear-wheel drive
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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.
5.turn radius

12.7m

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.
6.Euro NCAP rating

5

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.

Dimensions

1.weight

1.7t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
2.wheelbase

2.73m

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).
3.height

1.17m

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

4.65m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
5.payload capacity

225kg

The total weight of cargo that can be carried in the cab and cargo bed, including passengers.
6.width

1.66m

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

Speed

1.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

2.5s

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

344km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
3.Nürburgring lap time

6.57

The Nürburgring race circuit is widely considered to be the most challenging in the world, and the fastest lap times are seen as the ultimate test of a car’s performance. (Source: Nürburgring Lap Times)
4.coefficient of drag

0.36Cd

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 consumption.
5.acceleration time (100-200 km/h)

4.7s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 100-200 kilometres per hour.
6.acceleration time (0-200 km/h)

7.3s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-200 kilometres per hour.

Engine

1.maximum torque

540Nm

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

887hp

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

8

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
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
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.
5.fuel economy (combined)

3.1l/100 km

Fuel economy is a measurement of fuel efficiency, based on how far you can travel with a certain amount of petrol (gasoline). A higher fuel economy means the car will be cheaper to run.
6.engine size

4.6l

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.

Features

1.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
2.Has smart key as standard
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
3.USB ports

2

With more USB ports, you are able to connect more devices.
4.number of airbags

8

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
5.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
6.Has a rear-view camera
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
