900 HP Turbo Acura Integra Humiliates Corvette, Fights 1,500 HP TT Lamborghini

Many of you have come across the Acura Integra in racing games, but not even a Need For Speed-like level of enthusiasm would see the JDM coupe climbing as high as the actual car in the video below.

Sure, the Integra has plenty of tech assets (VTEC kicked in, yo!), but, to put it shortly, this was a car powered by a 1.8-liter engine that sent its power to the front wheels. At under 1,700 lbs (1,200 kg), it was a nimble animal, but there's only so much weight reduction can do when the pulling power is limited.

Now that you've read a brief description of the production Acura Integra versions, you can forget all about it. The car in this clip demolishes that, simply because it packs 900 hp.

With the help of a turbine the size of Japan, this Integra has been turned into a drag racer that can bring plenty of surprises to the drag strip.

On this occasion, that drag strip happened to be the Coloroado Springs Airport. For those of you who are not familiar with such details, we have to mention the Pike Peak Hillclimb isn't the only event that goes on in the area. The airport runway mention above hosts a 1/2-mile drag race every year.

The spicy races

The owner of this car definitely chose his opponents well. The guy started off with a 600 HP Corvette, a good way of showing everybody his Integra is a bit different.

However, he didn't spent too much time in the comfort zone. For example, he also raced a Lamborghini Gallardo wearing a twin turbo kit. And benchmarking your ride against an 1,500 HP Raging Bull is never a bad idea.
