I'm over torque to be honest. Some torque is nice, but not necessarily enough to cave my chest in, the novelty of that wears off quickly, whereas the thrill of high revs never gets old. I'd take the 458, or GT3, but more realistically (price wise) the e90 M3.

PS. The thrill of high revs can sometimes wear off too, when torque is so poor that the trade off is too great. e.g. the Honda S2000

PPS. Going down the greater displacement route is also lazy. As in the 6.2 liter AMG option.
