True, but 22ftlb (at the crank) isn't that much difference when comparing V8s'. The MB engine isn't high-revving, and it's a 6.2L so the power is pretty lacking.

Remember the torque to the wheels can be the same between a big engine and a small one. It's all about the gear and final drive ratios.

but the torque curve is FLAT as hell.. You should go drive one.. it's quite a bit faster in a straight line than the RS4 and it's fast.

I didn't know it's that heavy..pretty piggish. RS4 is 300lbs lighter!

..wonder if the M1(?) will become the BMW track warrior.
