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 Lamborghini, Chevrolet, and Honda.
Number of electric motors in the Lamborghini Terzo Millennio supercar concept. A far-out vision of future performance models, it boasts lots of carbon fiber and far-out tech like batteries that are malleable and form the bodywork.
How many more seconds it takes the BMW M3 CS to lap the Nürburgring than the M4 GTS. At 7 minutes and 38 seconds, the M3 CS is seriously quick, though it trails the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio’s ‘Ring time by six seconds.
Horsepower rating (that’s 300 kilowatts) of the Honda Sports Vision Gran Turismo concept. Conceived for the Gran Turismo Sport video game, the turbocharged carbon-fiber machine looks like a scaled-down Acura NSX.
The new top speed record, in miles per hour, set by the Koenigsegg Agera RS. The record attempt was completed on closed roads in Pahrump, Nevada. The Agera RS boasts 1,360 horsepower, so it’s no surprise it’s fast.
The amount of horsepower that’s rumored to be under the hood of the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. For now that information comes only from a leaked magazine cover, but we’re expecting to hear more about the top-dog C7 Corvette soon.
