There was a similar discussion when the S85 V10 engine specs were released but we have seen the M5 / M6 performance.
Power is power... It is about delivering torque to the wheels and the M3 V8 engine has a flatter torque curve than the M5 V10....
The key to the M3 will be weight and a 7 speed close ratio gearbox.... A 7 speed gearbox would be best matched with this V8 M3 engine given its "low" torque and high revs....
See this thread....trying to kick off similar technical discussions
