For your convenience. I even did the gear mulplication for you for the first 2 gears. You can mulply it by each cars engine torque within the appropriate powerband to see the m3 puts down as much more more torque to the ground in its powerband than the lexus and therefore given the m3 weighs less has more torque in any gear within its powerband felt to the ground.

This is where placebo or misunderstanding of an engine torque number gets people to rave about high torque and not account for gearing and powerband
