A 'HUGE' margin, simply based on 0-100 kph?? No track times-the Honda almost certainly wins most. And suspicious omission of Top Speed?

That's why there is second paragraph explaining that there is hardly any data to compare.

If a car is almost second faster to 100 it is usually quite a bit faster overall, unless we are talking 13-15 s 0-100 times where one second is relatively small difference.
