in both cars are good drivers. we have made a lot of tests on the track.

m3 dct is faster up to 200 because of gearing, better torque distribution
e55 amg is faster after 200 because of huge torque and gearing that helps in higer speeds (5 vs 7)

Not really. In a drag race the torque is not the relevant figure. It's the bhp, weight and aerodynamics.
Power to weight and slippy will win with equal drivers.
