Ok, so I really don't mean to be a downer here, but when MotorTrend tested the 2012 C63 AMG, they got a 0-60 of 3.7, which smoked the last M3:

A 3.9 is impressive and I'm not an HP whore or else I'd be driving a GT500, but still...425-431 HP is a bit of a letdown. The next gen C63 AMG is coming and rumors to be above 450 horsepower. The M4 was more impressive when we heard about the weight cuts and hopes were running high for a good sprint time, but with barely any more HP than the outgoing M3, I'm not sure if it's really worth the M badge. Don't get me wrong, the M3/4 is a million times more beautiful in my eyes and I'd take it over anything else under $100k any day, but still, I was expecting a bit more performance for that M badge. Especially since 335i's with ECU tunes and $1500 of upgrades are hitting close to 400 HP.

Not to mention the C7 Corvette is hitting close to a 3.6s and looks just as beautiful...
