Watch a 1500-Horsepower, AWD Honda Civic (Kinda) Jolt to 60 MPH in just 1.1 Seconds
One point one seconds in case you thought that was a typoby Tudor Rus, on
Alright. What’s the first thing that pops into mind when you hear the words Honda Civic? Nippy driving? Reliability? The Type R? A teenager’s car? Uber? Well, to us, it’s all of the above but to Norris Prayoonto and P-Racing, the Civic is proper dragster material. A downright scary one.
Meet the world’s fastest Honda
It packs the K24 engine married to a four-speed dogbox transmission but as you can imagine, the mill was severely tweaked to crank out 1,500 horses sent to all four wheels.
Now, if you’re really curious about what went into tuning the engine, here’s a short list:
- Supertech valvetrain
- Prayoonto cams
- Top-mount turbo manifold
- Motec M150 ECU
- GTX50 76mm turbo
- DSS axles and carbon driveshafts
Now, while we can understand that the list might not say much when read black-on-white, here’s the deal. The AWD Civic, thanks to all these add-ons, can pull off 0-60 mph sprints in 1.1 seconds. On top of that, it needs just 7.45 seconds to clear the quarter mile at 186 mph.
And no, we’re not done with the goodies. The video also shows and eight-second front-wheel-driven, all-motor Civic that can do 0-60 mph in 1.3 seconds. It just doesn’t get insaner than this.
That Racing Channel’s video below isn’t just about sheer horsepower unleashed on the drag strip. It also takes quite an interesting look at who is Norris Prayoonto and how he got tangled in the sport.
This one’s definitely worth watching from beginning to end. Plus, at 15-minute long, it shouldn’t disrupt your WFH schedule. We all need a break from time to time, and this makes for a neat one.
