Well, that's completely speculative on my part with not even a hint that I am on the right track from any source. But, given the latest M5 news, I'd give myself pretty decent odds. What do you think?
Yep, that sounds better! And as you said, given the recent M5 news, I believe you're not far off.
But, why not start at ~440-450hp, and then offer a comp package increasing power up to 460-470? You and I both know that with the numbers I'm suggesting this car will be an absolute BEAST and will sell even better, without hurting the M5/M6 sales. But, I'm only a car enthusiast with no knowledge of what these numbers mean to BMW. We'll see...
