what about a honda S2000?

quick comparison:

all models are 2005, except the retired 200hp taurus

weight/power ratio:
lower = better

taurus: 3343/153 = 21.8
taurus (200hp) : 3316/200 = 16.6
civic: 2449/115 = 21.3
accord I4: 3049/160 = 19.0
accord V6: 3349/240 = 14.0
S2000: 2835/240 = 11.8
odyssey: 4378/255 = 17.2
ridgeline: 4503/255 = 17.7

torque/power ratio:
lower = better

taurus: 3343/185 = 18.1
taurus (200hp) : 3316/200 = 16.6
civic: 2449/110 = 22.3
accord I4: 3049/161 = 18.9
accord V6: 3349/212 = 15.8
S2000: 2835/162 = 17.6
odyssey: 4378/250 = 17.5
ridgeline: 4503/252 = 17.9

in other words... the only thing the current taurus has a chance of beating in a straight line is a civic. and possibly an I4 accord, but thats close. the 200hp/tq model his a bit better, still loosing to the accord V6, and probably the S2000.
