considering if its such a supercar the craftsmanship should be there as well
enzo 6l 650hp
cerrera gt 5.7l 612hp
oh wait wasnt the old vett 5.7l? but they only made 405hp out of the zo6???
i mean honestly honda s2000 2.1l 240hp
the inefficiency of this car just baffels me
Let me learn you a little something.
Playing the displacement vs power game is for rice boys...
i could step up and say that Mazda's 13B Sequencial Turbo set up ran 200hp/litre on early 90's technology... but its a rotary engine.
The S2000 makes 240hp at what RPM?
oh thats right 7000 some odd...
it uses wide bore short stroke technique, no low end power to speak of...which isnt something to brag about with a naturally asperated engine.
Granted push rods arent todays latest and greatest technology but 500hp out of 7l and its 500 reliable horsepower that is useable in everyday driving. if you ran the s2000 between 5,000 and 9000 RPM all the time the engine life would be shortened greatly. not to say it is a bad motor.
when talking about performance it isnt hp/litre its hp/lb if the honda motor weighs 300lbs and the Z06's motor weighs 450lbs the zo6's motor is making a much larger dent into the hp per lb ratio than the s2000.
im not saying the s2000 is a bad car but this arguement is how civics with their 1.6l engines make excuses when they get walked on by ls1's.... "man my engine is making over 1 hp/litre, that damn ls1 is only making 3/5's that dawg...."
