Not making much sense there at all.

With the bore and stroke meant for high-revving and an 8500 rpm and a displacement of only 4.4 Liters, there is no way 370 ft-lbs will come out of the crank at any point in the rpm band unless the change the stroke of the car and lower the redline by 2000 rpm. It is meant to be a ferociously powerful car with focus on throttle sensitivity and control rather than a bottom-end torque monster.

Secondly, what's up with the comparison with M1?? regardless of what's on the paper, this car will eat the M1 alive and spit it out anywhere and anyplace. Not to mention, it will sound as good as the M1 could never even dream of while doing it.
