...acceleration is greatest at time zero, then tapers off to zero.

...velocity is zero at time zero, climbing towards an asympothic "limit" (HP vs aero-drag).

...hence, the quicker (and more) torque you can get sooner (turbo!), the faster the acceleration, but likely little more velocity at top end due to same aero-drag.
