With all these mistakes, the whole article ought to be questioned.
Yes, there are too many strange numbers in this article.

The s55 will most likely have quite exactly 40% more peak torque (560 to 400Nm) but never at 7500rpm. At 7500rpm s55 will have only about 7% more torque than the s65. Unless BMW plays jokes on us and will finally reveal that the s55 has much more power than indicated ("more than 430ps").
