I created a new graph assuming HP will be 450 (not 415) and I also put in a 50 lb-ft overboost feature similar to the E90/E92 335is for comparison.

As you can see this new power plant will be very potent, but definitely not a top end screamer as its predecessor as horsepower plateaus around 5,500 rpm. That sprint to redline wont yield any more power.

Almost seems as if BMW artificially created a high redline to appeal to the normally aspirated gearheads/magazines.
