Cuz a torqueless high revving V8 M3 is any better? Turbo engine are pretty much lag free these days. With full boost below 2500rpm your not waiting very long.

As you said below, its not about the redline but power delivery. A well engineered engine doesnt need to rev high itll make good power throughout the rev range.

Since when is a flat torque curve a bad way to deliver power? Unless youd rather feel the power kick in when you actually reach the power band cuz the low end is horrible?
