  • 0-60 in 1.1 seconds? Maybe the C8 isn't so fast after all. ;)

    https://www.ladbible.com/news/sport-...yPqWaLzlqiB1Jw

    A Honda Civic has broken records by travelling 0-60mph in just 1.1 seconds during a quarter-mile run at the Haltech World Cup Finals.

    The car broke the AWD (All-Wheel Drive) Honda quarter-mile record at Maryland International Raceway at the event a few months back, having completed the stretch in a super speedy 7.45 seconds.

    In a new video from YouTube feed That Racing Channel, Norris Prayoonto of P-Racing discussed the drag racing team's line-up of ridiculously fast AWD/FWD Hondas - including that fifth generation, 1,500-horsepower model.

    Under the hood of the Honda Civic coupe drag car there's a bespoke Prayoonto 2.2-litre K24 inline-four engine with billet pistons, bespoke cams and a Supertech valvetrain.

    According to Road and Track, there's also 'three injectors per cylinder, a Motec ECU, and a Garrett GTX50 76-millimeter turbocharger making 60-plus pounds of boost'.

    Then you've got a four-speed dogbox and an all-wheel-drive system, sending all that power to the wheels.

    Combine all of that, and you have yourself a car that can speed to 60mph in just 1.1 seconds, racing through the quarter-mile track in 7.45 seconds.

    It's hardly surprising that many people are impressed by the Honda's unexpected power, with one person commenting on the YouTube video: "This vid makes me want to confiscate my daughter's 2000 Honda...Lol..."

    Someone else wrote on the Prayoonto's Facebook page: "You will have to go back to the starting line to retrieve your stomach... 1.1 seconds AWESOME!!"

    You can't compare the C8 daily driver to a stripped tin can drag car with huge money and time involvement. The C8 is extremely quick and comfortable, good looking, affordable, creature comforts, etc.

      A Top Fuel Dragster does 0-100 in 0.8 seconds (yes, 8 tenths of a second). That's 0-100 mph. Let's compare apples to apples!

        I was hardly making a serious comparison, guys. Hence the smiley in the title. Still, 1500 HP out of a 2.4 liter 4 cyl. is nothing to sneeze at.

          Should have had a V8 or a C8 or both. Now it's a Civic???
