According to the magazines, an S2000 is slightly faster (same 0-60, but faster quarter mile) than a 2002 Camaro Z28. We all know that in the real world the Camaro isn't going to lose to an S2000. In real world, it isn't practical to dump the clutch at 7,000 RPM's on less than perfect roads. People aren't going to get miracle times too. Why do people look at miracle times and swear by it? Is it just hardcore love for their manufactures? This also reminds me of the IS300 vs TSX argument. They're very similar in specs, but a creamy I6 is going to perform better under many other different circumstances out in the real world vs a tricked out I4. The TSX is going to feel slower too.
