M3 worth $90K???

So here is how I tie this video into an M3 discussion.

IF...the new M3 laid down THIS kind of pull....I WOULD DEFINITELY pay $90K +++ to park it in the driveway.

This dude WALKS this Lambo.

2008 Lamborghini LP640 vs 1200RWHP Toyota Supra

Yes, but the Toyota can blow up on a moments notice. That is the beauty of the Lambo, and the M3 - STOCK super performance. Under warranty.

Great point.

I have pushed my M to the limit consistently and that is one thing I have always felt confident in. It never fails.

You know, after watching that, street racing seems like the DUMBEST thing in the world - wow.

+1 Less lambo, more time in the gym - what a slob And this is not about envy: I really don't envy this guy ...

And the Supra - man, that is crazy quick. But all 'round driveability / reliability ...

The extra weight of his double chin alone must have cost at least 1/2 sec

Yep. It's one thing getting yourself killed, quite another taking the innocent with you.

Agreed, people tend to disregard how delicate highly modded motors like that Supra's are.

I am not sure delicate is the correct word. I have an 87 model supra turbo, heavily modded but stock internals running 15 lbs of boost and making over 400hp at the wheels and it had been a daily driver for over five years. (Five hard years at that!) engine has been flawless! However, I am ready to indulge in the new M3---sure is nice knowing that if you hit the rev limiter daily that there is a warranty! I will surely miss the sound and powerband of a FI engine. Just my two pennies worth!
