I'd buy a used Toyota Supra for that kind of money.

My son would worship you if he could have heard you say that. He is 3 years old & loves his Supra & his elder brother loves the Dodge viper, now is that a co-incidence ?

Considering that the stock is timing at a shade below 9 seconds, I would think anywhere in the region of 10 - 11 seconds.

Though both cars are equally good, and i love them both, i voted for the RS. i don't know why. i can't explain it. the Accord is a complete package. the RS is a complete driver's car. the Accord is more luxurious and majestic looking. but when i was to vote, i voted for the RS.

Ofcourse man Skoda RS is the first Turbo Charged Petrol Engine In India Launched.
Honda just have the brand name and nothing else. Yes, their interiors are good but Engines they are not that powerful. We have good cars in here against Honda.

Dude Try HYUNDAI SONATA EMBERA and you will forget Accord.

What are you talking about? If there is anything about a Honda, its the engine....class-leading in power, FE, reliability and refinement.

The 2.4 Accord makes 142 BHP while the V6 churns out 221 horses. How much more power do you want from the naturally-aspirated engines?

Skoda RS Interiors vs Honda Accord 2.4 vti - Vote goes to Accord
Skoda RS Engine vs Honda Accord 2.4 vti - Engine:
Skoda: 1.8L, approx 150 HP which is more than accord 2.4, TURBO CHARGED, 21.3 kgm Torque.
Accord: 2.4L, 142 HP, 20 kgm torque

Skoda's Engine is more refined than Honda's Engine.
Vote goes for Skoda RS

I guess i'm not wrong bro.
