Following your logic M4 can only be compared to another M4.
The Ghibli was built by Maserati to compete with the BMW 5-series, Audi A6, and Mercedes E-Class. It has a longer wheelbase, and is overall longer, taller, and wider than an M4. It also has two extra doors.

The 5-series, A6, and E-Class all make around the same HP as the M4. That doesn't mean that they compete in the same market, or are remotely the same kind of cars. The Ghibli competes with them, not the F80 or F82.

Apples and oranges.
