"The validity of some horsepower figures is subject to some doubt and peak horsepower, even if it is acccurate, is largely of academic value. "Horsepower sell engines and torgue wins motor race", the man told me 20 years ago and nothing has proven him wrong yet!"

I believe HP is more equated with top speed where torque is the ability to accellerate out of a corner and this is what wins road races.
