Yeah, that comparison did not tell the whole story, as the key difference is not torque numbers but a usable torque range. In S2000 the peak torque was developed in a very tiny range - you almost need 10+ gears to get both usable power and reasonable fuel economy (which would still be much worse than the BMW's new engine).
