I understand but I wouldn't feel good going into a slower (albeit marginally) car. This is what turned me off about the Gran Turismo..even though it looks spectacular I don't want to go slower. I'd still be interested to see a straight line comparison. The AM V8 has more torque than the M3 but the weight differences and transmission might show otherwise in a race
