Assuming you are not hearing/observing the car lose traction under hard acceleration the transmission can sound like it is slipping because there is a fluid coupling between the engine and the transmission, in the form of a torque converter. Under normal use at some point the converter is locked so the connection between the engine and transmission bypasses the torque converter.

You might be feeling what I feel in my Redeye, its the stall setting of the converter. At light / part throttle in first gear, it feels like its "slipping" right before it shifts into second. At full throttle.....well you know !
