Comptech Supercharged Acura 3.2CL Type-S

John Pearley Huffman drives the SEMA Concept Comptech Supercharged Acura CL Type S and gives the scoop over at caranddriver.com. An excerpt of the article is shown below. You can read the entire article over at caranddriver.com

Conceived by Honda Access Americas, the accessories division of Honda R&D Americas, and built with Comptech (which has modified and raced Hondas since 1979), this supercharged Acura 3.2CL Type-S six-speed two-door is a more powerful version of a car that is already the most powerful front-wheel-drive vehicle Honda has ever made. In fact, among current production front-drivers, only Cadillac?s Northstar V-8?powered sedans, the 265-hp 2004 Nissan Maxima, and the 268-hp Volvo S80 T6 are more powerful than the stock 260-hp 3.2CL Type-S and its brother, the 3.2TL Type-S four-door. Adding a blower to the 3.2CL is something like shipping seawater to the Mariana Trench.

Power (mfr?s claim): 369 bhp @ 6800 rpm
Torque (mfr?s claim): 302 lb-ft @ 5400 rpm
Transmission: 6-speed manual
Curb weight: 3500 lb
Zero to 60 mph: 5.7 sec
Zero to 100 mph: 13.2 sec
Zero to 130 mph: 23.6 sec
Street start, 5?60 mph 5.8 sec
Standing 1/4-mile: 14.2 sec @ 104 mph
Braking, 70?0 mph: 176 ft
Roadholding, 300-ft-dia skidpad: 0.89 g
