Is the Honda Civic Type R really that powerful?

Today this Civic type R was revving me and my friend we were in his Chrysler 200S 2016 at a red light. They both floored it and my friend won he got to a higher speed much faster than the Type R and the Honda driver was trying his best. Is the Type R overrated in speed?


No, but BOTH drivers are overrated in intelligence!


The type R SHOULD have won. If the 200S was a V6, the power is similar but the type R wold be lighter. My guess is the 200S was an auto and the type R a manual. It takes less skill to get the best from an auto.
