HP is actually pretty boring, once you get past the novelty of acceleration
The very first time you floor a car with 700 horsepower, it feels like a jump to hyperspace. Your sense of balance is thrown off, and your brain struggles to keep up with the rate at which the scenery is becoming increasingly blurred. The second time? It's still cool, but the more you do it, the more it becomes routine. I would know. I've been there.
When Motor Trend's Randy Pobst first tested the 2015 Z06, a car built with the sole purpose of being blisteringly quick, he had but one complaint: "Honestly, I want another hundred more [horsepower]. It's stable enough. You don't feel threatened." To be clear, he's talking about a 650hp beast of a car. A generation ago, that much power could have triggered a need for a change of underwear as you desperately tried to keep it on the road, despite the tires shouting their obvious intent to kill you.
