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.

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 :p

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. :p All I know of American engines is they make really power inefficient V8's. :p

You wish!

That is quite pathetic power/displacement for a turbo. o_O
Yes. And due to its unique running situation it's currently way down on power (I quoted factory spec) <_<
