300 ft lbs is plenty to get up to speed but in the average sedan you'd probably be limited to 50 or 60 mph top speed. I'm sure there's a calculator somewhere which measures top speed vs. hp and torque.a) Slow to start but unstoppable. Driving on a mountain road feels like driving on a flat land. Hills? What hills. Too bad though that revving up that engine doesn't make the car accelerate any quicker.
