Theres stilla a huge difference in power, Not to mention the advantage of Awd, It out performs in in acceleration, As it should, You could always compare it to a HellCat or CTSV, Or Model S, Then it wouldnt look so fast. But i agree about the lying part.

The weight/power ratio is practcally the same and the S8 outperforms the m3.
However the m3/4, m5/6 are hugely underrated on paper.
In real life the m3/4 push 480hp on dyno, so bmw lie to their own customers. Make better cars instead of lying.
