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 Ferrari, BMW, Porsche, and more.
How many pounds of weight Ferrari shaved off the 488 GTB to create the new 488 Pista. Oh, and the new supercar has an extra 50 horsepower (for a total of 711 hp), plus 7 extra pound-feet of torque – enough for a 2.85-second sprint to 62 miles per hour. It’ll debut at the Geneva Motor Show.
The total cost, in dollars, of options available for the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Yes, that’s a huge sum, and it pushes the car’s potential sticker price up to a grand total of $253,240. But then again, you need painted air vents ($1,720) and a long-range fuel tank ($140), right?
The amount of downforce, in pounds, produced by the aerodynamic bodywork on the Lotus 3-Eleven 430. The special-edition car, which will be limited to just 20 examples, marks the end of 3-Eleven production. The track machine packs 430 horsepower and a top speed of 180 mph.
The number of years since the introduction of the BMW M4 convertible. The milestone is being celebrated by an M4 Convertible Edition 30 Jahre. Limited to only 300 cars, the droptop comes with the M Competition package, various visual tweaks, and unique paint schemes.
