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 article_id=6705" >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
