It depends upon how far down you press the accelerator.

It doesn't matter, when you wrap it around a pole somewhere.Speed is for racetracks and drag strips. Leave it there.

The '08 Acura TL Type-S w/6-speed VS '08 Honda Accord Coupe w/6-speed would be pretty close since they have similar power to weight ratios. It would come down to the better driver.

I have a '96 Acura 3.2TL and I raced my freind who just bought a 2008 Honda Accord V6 and we were very close all the way, he just beat me by a foot or two on the stretch. So seeing as though Acura has probably made modifications to their model since 1996, I would say if they are both the same year cars, The TL would win.Remember though that Acura is owned by Honda and both these cars use the same honda engine, but Acura is honda's premium make and the TL would probably prevail over the accord.I think when it really comes down to it though, it would really depend upon the driver and how comfortable they are with the cars.

Honda Accord.It is lighter. 0-60mph in 5.9 seconds.Acura TL is a luxury car, which means more weight.0-60mph in 6.2 seconds.
