2000 Honda Civic Si 1.6L from North America
Finding a stock 2000 Civic Si is becoming nearly impossible, not only a bargain, but an investment.
The headliner was not properly re-mounted after some PDR(Paintless Dent Repair) work due to hail damage, causing annoying rattling.
Handles extremely well at all speeds.
Rapidly accelerates with ease at any speed, however most of this car's speed and torque is found in the 5500-8000 RPM mark, an attribute that most feel uncomfortable with.
The clutch is very forgiving of new or unexperienced drivers, but packs a strong punch for the serious drivers.
The 1.6L 4cyl engine is produces 160HP. Many overlook the fact that the Horsepower to pound ratio for the Civic is much lower than that of of any other car, which is why so much power can be produced from such a small engine.
The 2000 Civic Si is a great car to buy. You get the trademark reliability of Honda, the driving comfort of a Lexus and the power of a much more expensive sports sedan at a very reasonable price.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I don't get how the weight of a car can change how much *power* can be produced from an engine.
Power to weight ratio is overrated, and typically used by anyone who has a car that is slow, yet weighs less than other cars. The car may "feel" fast, but some of that can be attributed to the noise the engine makes at high revs.
