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.
I agree, I actually strongly dislike the N54 power delivery. I like cars that are a challenge to get the most out of. My old M Coupe handled like hell, but when you got it right, it was incredibly rewarding. Same for my dad's FD RX7 (speaking of no torque).

I'm sure the new F80 will be fast, but I sort of fear it won't be much fun to drive.
