I will be truly disappointed if the new M3 won't break 500HP. It's competition the next C63, next RS4/5, and many many other cars will put the M3 in the dust if this happens.

Well prepare for a guaranteed disappointment. The car just will not have 500 hp.

Despite the AMGs rapid improvements in the handling department and on track performance the M has most often bested competitors on a road course but not always at the drag strip. Probably not much different this time around...
