Transmissions are rated by their torque capacity, not horsepower. Given the M3 only currently puts out 295 ft-lbs with 414hp, even if it puts out 600hp then thats 375 ft-lbs with max torque probably being 410 ft-lbs. I would bet that the both trannies could manage that.

In comparison thats less ft-lbs than the MB C63 (442), Corvette (470), and current Audi RS6 (479).
