As far as the gt500 - 631 ft/lb torque and 0-60 in 3.5 secs? There is nothing but awesome about that. Couldn't imagine a v8 more different than the m3. Mind-bending torque vs a screaming redline. I personally love high strung engines, but I would not turn my nose up at a GT500.
Speaking from experience. They are completely different cars. No where close and not in the same class IMO. Unless of course that class includes a VERY wide range of cars.
