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.
The M3 GT2 has 4.0l and 500 Nm at the crank.
