The CL type S is only available with an automatic so a 5speed Alty would probably win, auto to auto would be a close race. Motortrend has the following numbers:MR Bulk™ said:Which is faster? Any numbers (road test times, hp/tq, weight, etc. on the Acura) available somewhere?
Any help appreciated.
Yep, saw one at the L.A. Auto Show. 6-speeds. Don't know about price or availability though. Looks like it will go on sale sometime around March '02. Still doesn't mean I'll be trading in mine any time soon. Not worth an extra $5k to me.kvou812 said:Supposedly a manual version of the CL-S is in the very near future.
That's a good thing.kvou812 said:Basically the CL has 20 more hp (260), but doesn't reach it until 6100rpm
Afty said:SteVTEC, I've read several people complain that the CL-S engine is much peakier than the VQ engine in the Maxima and Altima. Any idea why this is? Maybe because even though the torque peak in the VQ is higher, it still produces more lb-ft of torque throughout the midrange than the Acura?
If you just leave it in D or 3, where does the 4AT shift at when going up through the gears? Does it shift at redline or somewhat before that?Primer said:I power shift on my 4AT. If you power shift you'll get better numbers. I beat a lexus IS300 the other day doing this. Oh the lexus had the MT.
