Sorry but these type of arguments drive me nuts. Who frickin cares about displacement per HP? Really.
BTW, I owned an M6 and thought the engine sucked. It went through oil like a 72 chevette and had horrible gas mileage coupled with a small gas tank.
Fuel efficency isn't just about cost. It's also about frequency of filling the tank and distance covered on a tank.
