In Reply to: HP means nothing, It is TORQUE that wins races.... posted by JP///M3.2 on January 08, 2001 at 04:17:54:

Peak torque is often overlooked but to say that hp is not important is missing the point. Cars like the S2000 and the Ferrari's shine because of good breathing at high RPM. They will beat cars with much higher torque ratings.

In the end both numbers are important when looking at cars.
