Is this sort of performance increase unprecedented in your view?

E36 M3 -- 14.2-.6 @ 93-98 mph.

E46 M3 -- 13.3-.5 @ 103-106 mph.

E9X M3 -- 12.5-.7 @ 113-115 mph.

I know a similar power increase is reportedly not in store for the F80, but less weight, likely superior launch control, power characteristics more favorable to straight line acceleration. 120 mph trap doesn't strike me as crazy. History indicates that it's not.
