You can have massive amounts of HP and little to no torque, and said 
car, plane {insert fav mode of transport} and you won't go anywhere 
fast but once you get it rolling, will be able to get some good speed.  
HP doesn't move anything, torque is what gets the world moving.


Reminds me of the Cassini(?)spacecraft.  The ion engine puts 
out enough force to "lift a piece of typing paper" but apply 
that constantly, over a period of weeks or months and it's 
the fasteat traveling manmade object ever!  That's a lot of 
brake hp!  ;-)
