That extra 100 pounds of torque will leave your car behind.
Have fun in your AMG
Max torque by itself is a meaningless number. Max HP is more representative of the accelerative capabilities of the engine. In general, same HP = same acceleration for a given weight.
However I do suspect that BMW will underrate this engine as it seems they have been doing so a lot recently.
