From an all new Audi A7 to a 300-mph hypercar, these are the most important numbers of the week.
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, Polestar, and Aston Martin.
The overall length, in inches, of the all-new Audi A7. Though it may not seem like an important number, the A7 is 0.6 inches shorter than its predecessor. That size allows it to better hug the road, providing even more performance both on the street and track.
The amount of range, in miles, that the new Polestar 1 coupe is capable of in pure electric mode. The Swedish supercar comes with a hybrid setup that delivers 600-horsepower (447 kilowatts) and 737 pound-feet (1,000 Newton-meters) of torque. The Polestar 1 will make its production debut in 2019.
The alleged top speed, in miles per hour (482 kilometers per hour), of the upcoming new Hennessey Venom F5. The company teased the top speed on social media, and released a one-minute teaser video of the new supercar in action prior to its SEMA debut next month.
The amount of horsepower (521 kilowatts) expected on the all-new Aston Martin Vanquish. The sports car was spotted testing earlier this week on the 'Ring, draped in a sultry matte black exterior, and showing off nearly the entirety of its final design. Expect a full reveal sometime next year.
The amount of miles (239 kilometers) ever driven on this pristine McLaren F1. Still covered in its factory protective wrap, the F1 chassis number 060 seen here is available for sale from exotic cars dealer Tom Hartley Jnr. Just don’t expect it to go for cheap.
