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 Audi, Toyota, Nissan, and more.
The amount of horsepower (253 kilowatts) that will available on the new Audi Q8 – the German marque’s first SUV coupe – in 2019. All that power will come courtesy of a turbocharged 3.0-liter engine, and the entry-level TDI model will produce 286 horsepower (213 kilowatts). The new Q8 will show up in markets like Germany and throughout Europe in 2018 before making its way to the U.S.
The speed (in miles per hour) that automakers like Hennessey, Bugatti, and Koenigsegg hope to reach – and Michelin might have the tires to do it. The French tire manufacturer is reportedly readying a set capable of reaching 300 miles per hour (482 kilometers per hour). Let’s hope one of these automakers is up to the task.
That’s how much the new Toyota Supra could cost (in U.S. dollars) when it debuts. This somewhat confirms rumors that the new sports car wouldn’t be cheap; but all that money should be worth it. The Supra will be able to sprint to 60 miles per hour (96 kilometers per hour) in just 4.5 seconds.
The number of cute camper vans Nissan now offers in Europe. The e-NV200 and the NV300 camper vans were shown at the Madrid Motor Show. The former comes powered by a 40-kilowatt-hour battery pack good for a range of up to 187 miles (300 kilometers), and the latter uses a 1.6-liter diesel.
