Power to weight is going to be amazing

If it really gets 426 hp (recent strong rumor) then lb/hp figures are:

AM Vantage: 9.5
RS4: 9.4
Carrera S: 8.8
E92 M3 (3700 lb): 8.7
F355: 8.3
E92 M3 (3500 lb): 8.2
E60 M5: 8.1
Corvette C5: 8.0



(OK 1/(power/weight) technically)

Yeah, thats great. I've done that with kg/HP (germany):

3,52: BMW M6
3,61: BMW M5
3,71: Audi R8

3,75: BMW M3 E92 (1600kg)
3,87: BMW M3 E92 (1650kg)
3,99: BMW M3 E92 (1700kg)
4,04: Audi RS4 (based on 1700kg weight)
4,21: Porsche Carrera S
4,23: Aston Martin V8


So the M3 will be a very fast car!

Best regards, south

Porsche's MY2008 997S is suppose to get 370-380 BHP. That will change the numbers a little. The E92 M3 would still have the advantage though.

hm, how did you come up with 3700lb? i am just curious
did you just put it up as the worst case scenario?
i highly doubt it's going to be even 3600lb but those numbers look great.
thanks for the calculation.

You got it, good guess at my intent with those numbers.
