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 Ford, BMW, Honda, and Toyota.
How much extra power the 2019 Ford Edge ST produces versus the Edge Sport it replaces. Yes, it’s Ford’s first ST crossover, with an upgraded suspension, an eight-speed automatic transmission, stronger brakes, and a total of 335 horsepower.
How much farther, in miles, a BMW M5 recently drifted continuously compared to the previous record. The 232.5-mile drift, which required more than 2,000 laps around a skid pad, was so lengthy than BMW’s daring precision drivers even had to refuel the M5 mid-drift five times.
The target fuel economy, in miles per gallon, of the 2019 Honda Insight. Based on the Civic, the new Insight will go on sale later this year to take on the likes of the Toyota Prius and Hyundai Ioniq with its two-motor hybrid system.
Horsepower rating of the Toyota GR Super Sport. Though it’s only a concept, the car previews an FIA World Endurance Championship racer and is motivated by a hybrid powertrain with a 2.4-liter biturbocharged V6 engine.
