I am honestly really curious to see if the 458 feels/is faster than my M3. I should have it beat in power/weight ratio.

in that video they say you have to shift at 7500, which sucks looking at this dyno of a 458.

I dont think you'll have any problems deciding which one "feels faster". you'll have a blast no matter which you choose, although that guy squalking in my ear every 2 seconds would drive me nuts!

F 458 wiki-"The 458 Italia is powered by a 4.5 L (270 cu in) V8 engine derived from a shared Ferrari/Maserati design, producing 562 hp (419 kW; 570 PS) at 9,000 rpm (redline) and 398 lbft (540 Nm) at 6,000 rpm[5] with 80% torque available at 3,250 rpm.[4] Due to the aerodynamics pushing more air into the engine at high speeds, the engine develops 570 hp (425 kW) at top speed.[citation needed] The engine features direct fuel injection, which is a first for Ferrari mid-rear engine setups in its road cars.[4]"

"Ferrari's official 0-100 km/h (62 mph) acceleration is under 3.4 seconds,[7] while top speed is over 325 km/h (202 mph), "
