That torque rating is really good for a 2.0 or 2.2 that the f20c and f22c engines that come in honda S2000s. The top end is great, trust me the car is not slow for being stock.

Well Torque can be described in many different ways Torque is a force that tends to rotate or turn things, but in cars, torque is the power of the engine. Torque is usually made from pressure against the piston that is from the combustion of gas, which goes to the connecting rod into the crankshaft. So in a comparison, a big giant construction truck is say 377hp and produces 1,650 lb-ft of torque at 1200 rpm. and a sports car goes at, lets say, goes at 5,600 rpm at 350ft of torque. The truck may have low rpm because it was meant to last for years while the sports car has a higher rpm to go faster but may have usually wear and tear of driving unless you are driving it REALLY hard. So basically, the S2000 is pretty reliable on engine. However there has been complaints about the comfort of the ride, stereo, and interior room, so you might need to think twice about getting an S2000 if you are 6 foot person.

I love my s2k. I have a silver 2002. It is very much a Jekyll and Hyde car. Around town, when you keep it below 5K rpm, it drives like a Civic - nice and easy but get it above 5K, things get wicked and you have all the speed and acceleration you could possibly want. You can easily go toe to toe with a Porsche Boxter and make him work to win. If you are a tuner, this really isn't a car for you though because there aren't many mods you can make to get it to go faster outside a very expensive turbo, which will double your horses. I will add that it is probably best as a second car as the trunk will hold a day bag and a set of golf clubs so longer trips are a bit hard to do unless you pack light. That said, the seats are supportive and fit just right. The car can work if you are a six footer (I'm 6' 2" and fit fine). In regards to torque and your question, there's a great answer from the Department of Energy located here: http://www.newton.dep.anl.gov/askasc...g99128.htmThey even mention the s2000. Have fun with your s2k -- if you dare. Best, http://www.hybrid-rental-car.com
