Khodrocar - Numbers are all around us – whether we're breaking down the performance of a Ferrari 488, or comparing the price of a Model S to a Mercedes. Every week we pick out a few numbers that are so significant we have to give them a second look. Today we’re looking at key figures from Chevrolet, Tesla, and more.
How much more power, in horsepower, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 produces than the regular Z06. The car’s 6.2-liter supercharged V8 also dishes up 715 pound-feet of torque, and Chevy claims the top-dog Corvette will reach 210 miles per hour.
The claimed 0-60-mph time for the Tesla Roadster. Due in 2020, the car will apparently cost $200,000 and deliver an all-electric driving range of 620 miles – all while delivering an 8.8-second quarter-mile time. We’ll wait to see whether any of those lofty claims come true.
The annual production capacity planned for Saleen’s upcoming factory in China. Among other vehicles, Saleen will use the facility to build the S1, a 450-hp, 180-mph supercar that will debut at this year’s L.A. Auto Show.
The cutesy city car from Fiat has reached an important milestone this week as the one-millionth Panda belonging to the current fourth generation was assembled at the G. Vico Pomigliano d'Arco plant in Italy. The celebratory car is a white Panda Cross with the puny 69-horsepower 1.2-liter gasoline engine and set to be delivered in the near future to a customer from the model’s domestic market Italy.
