But that’s the point - you can’t have continuous hp with different torques if the gearing is the same. In fact almost impossible to have continuous hp...

The last bit is key - given that the turbo s will be doing 100kph (give or take) when the launch control boost is deactivated after 2.5 seconds then it stands to reason its 80-120 will be slightly faster.

The hp vs torque argument is funny and I’ve had my fair share of contributions :)
As far as ICE cars are concerned it comes down to multiple gears - a higher top hp allows you to run a lower gear ratio for the equivalent road speed. Anyway it’s the area under the graph you want not peak (hence why turbo cars always outperform equivalent hp n/a cars.

I guess until somebody gets one on a rolling road it’s all conjecture.
