The resulted-ranking tells one thing: In general, there exisit a deminishing marginal rate of return on the next extra dollar you spend on purchasing a car. Cars are more expensive at the bottom of the list.
But i think the following formula works better:
weight / (hp / displacement)
= (weight * displacement )/ hp
$ is not taken into acoount here... but if you want, you can take the whole thing and divide by price.
which gives the result in "per dollar" term.
