I only had the dry weight available to me when I made the post.

"F430 dry weight is 1350kg or 2975lb . Curb weight is 1450kg or 3196lb."

So to correct my statement:

An m3 would need more than 565hp (assuming a weight of 3704), in order to keep up with a F430. However, the F430 has a superior chassis and aerodynamics that will further widen the gap between the two.
