The last 2000-3000 rpm is where all the action happens. The S65's torque falls off precisely where you want it to be peaking.
I am a big boy, flame away.
If you feel that way I reckon you should try a Honda S2000, it does exactly what you are looking for in an engine and if you happen to live in the UK you could get yourself a TVR Cerbera 4.2 which again does exactly what you are looking for but on both counts you will be throwing away a more drivable car.
Each to there own I say.
