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 Mercedes-Benz, Honda, and Genesis.
The amount of horsepower (745 kilowatts) available on the all-new Mercedes-AMG Project One hypercar. Powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine, and paired with two electric motors, the Project One is able to sprint to 124 miles per hour (200 kilometers per hour) in under six seconds, and continue on to a top speed of 217 mph (350 kmh).
The number of cars (and a toy) that inspired the quirky little Honda Urban EV concept that made its debut in Frankfurt. Everything from the VW Golf MK1 to the Tamagachi share similarities with the edgy electric hatchback. A production version of the Urban EV concept in Europe in 2019.
The number of years we’ll likely have to wait to see this stunning Kia concept reach the production line (if at all). The Proceed "extended hot hatch" made its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show, and previews a replacement for the current Pro’ceed hatchback. Hopefully the design doesn’t change much from concept to production.
The amount of time, in seconds, that it took the Bugatti Chiron to reach 249 miles per hour (400 kilometers per hour) and brake back to zero. The supercar was driven by famed racing driver Juan Pablo Montoya, and the entire thing was capture on video for all of us to enjoy.
