The easy answer is that the more power and more efficiently the power is created and transferred from chemical energy to mechanical energy via the transmission makes the difference. Obviously, the explanation of how and why starts to get fuzzier
Higher compression ratio engines, fuel delivery, more flexibility in timing, lighter parts, more gears in the transmission, etc. all make a difference. I just kinda miss the days when learning basic mechanical skills would essentially allow you to service your own car. Now, without a computer, all you can do is guess and be pretty sure.
