    Forum-wide survey: How oomphy is your ride?

    I'm swamped with work so during a break to take my mind off it, I thought I'd create this thread. What I'm looking for is how much power your daily/weekend/whatever has in regards to its kerb weight and displacement. Aspiration doesn't matter towards the number, but would be nice to have as a footnote in the spreadsheet.

    I'll start:

    2004 Audi A4: 175hp (130.6kW) at 1.896 litres and 1350kg makes it:

    68.7 kW/l and 96.7 kW/t

    Now you go!

    EDIT: Here's the spreadsheet. I feel so alone.

      1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee 275hp, 375lbft at 5.981 litres - ~1900kg with armour, tools, and recovery gear.

      46.0 hp/l, 62 lbft/l and 144.7 hp/t, 197.4 lbft/t


      Strong candidate for lowest hp/L!

        I am no longer alone!

        We'll see about that. Currently you're in the lead with power/weight.

          In before Viper!

          1970~2011 Lotus/Caterham 7, 150 hp, 1.7l, 550kg, although I have yet to dyno it after I messed with the engine...

          1985 E28 528i is supposedly 135kw, 1320kg, but I have my doubts

              Replies in the thread, please. Would love to open the sheet to outside editing, but that could just have someone ctrl+a and delete.

              I have enabled commenting, though.

                        As usual, I'm cheating.

                        2010 Mazda RX-8 R3: 232 hp (173 kW), 1308cc, 1388 kg

                        For this one I seem to get different answers depending on who I ask.

                        1989 Toyota Blizzard SX5: 85 PS (62.5 kW), 2446cc, 1480 kg

                          Write it down, then. All I know of American engines is they make really power inefficient V8's.

                              That is quite pathetic power/displacement for a turbo.

                                    Yes. And due to its unique running situation it's currently way down on power (I quoted factory spec)

                                        Need weight and displacement, as sad as you think they may be.
