Didn't Honda 10 years ago produce a 2.0L N/A 240hp engine for the S2000

Am I missing something here? is Honda ahead of its time, or is BMW lagging behind.
Did you ever drive the S2000? It was an awesome engine on paper or the track, as a daily driver... well that was a different story. I think this engine was designed to be a good base engine in a series car, and as such give power and torque across the driving range. We'll have to wait and see once the cars hits the streets, but given BMWs philosophy behind TwinPower, I dont think its going to be anything but spectacular to drive (given its displacement of course).

Also better fuel efficiency and lower emissions.
