100hp per liter, you realize how much hp the M3 would have it were an equivalent size to it's competitors like the mustang gt or the C63?
You realize that the engine in the Z06 weighs about the same or maybe a little less than the M3 motor, don't you. Displacement is not the correct measurement of an engine; weight is. The M3's engine is nothing special.
Don't get me wrong. There is nothing out there I'd rather have than my e90. I just don't buy into this "legendary" bs.
