The most powerful car you can buy is the 2013 Hennessey Venom GT which develops 1,244 H.P.
The car's acceleration is in forward direction.
Acceleration describes the motion of a car. Acceleration is defined as an increase in the rate or speed of something.
A kilowatt is the metric unit for power. A horsepower is the Imperial unit for the same thing. So there's absolutely no reason why a kilowatt shouldn't be used to measure the output power of a car engine in the same way that a horsepower was. In fact, outside the US, most countries rate their car engines in kilowatts not in horsepower.
It varies with the amount of horsepower, and torque the engine is putting out. Also the weight of the car is a big factor. More horsepower and torque and less weight equals more acceleration and a faster 0-60 time. All at the expense of mileage.
They have bigger engines with more horsepower, and they are tuned for rapid acceleration.
horsepower/torque from the engine is transferred through gears to the tires to accelerate the car. The higher the power/weight, given enough traction, the faster the acceleration.
Unregulated. BMW. 1500 on Methanol.
I'd say the Corvette ZR1
A vehicles "power" is usually measured by the term "horsepower". The Acura model with the most horsepower is the Acura TL-SH AWD. This car first was first released to the market in 2012. It boasts 304 horsepower. Other Acura models have horsepower around 280 HP.
There is only acceleration if the car's velocity changes. If it moves at a constant velocity, then there is no acceleration.
false A car can have a negative acceleration and be speeding up. A negative acceleration determines the direction of the acceleration A car with forward acceleration will speed up in the forward direction A car moving forward with a negative acceleration will slow down A car not moving with a negative acceleration will speed up in the backward direction A car moving backward with a negative acceleration will speed up in the backward direction
A World of Outlaws sprint car engine can vary from about 810 horsepower to about 900 horsepower.
the horsepower of a car depends on the number of cylinders it has. The engine displacement does not affect the horsepower of a car by much.
Horsepower is the energy output of the engine. More horsepower = more energy. This does not, however, mean faster, or better acceleration. Not all of the energy produced by the engine will make it to the wheels. Most is lost in the form of heat. Torque is what will push you back into your seat.
Horsepower is the basis for a car going faster
