I think in the real world it does nothing for us consumers. Afterall, if we wanted more horspower or torque we can get it with other means.
But I think the horsepower/L is more of an engineering achievement and is more meaningful to the automotive industry from a technical standpoint.

I think it's absolutely amazing that you can squeeze-out over 300 horses from a normally aspirated 3.2L engine and still remain within the very strict CA emission codes.

But then again, I've been told it doesn't take much to get me excited.
