BMW M3 Power Curve


With the V8 engine (420 horsepower @ 8400 rpm), this M-series coupe produces as much power as a standard BMW (230 horsepower) at half the maximum RPM. The M3 is also more powerful than the Porsche Cayman S (320 hp), although the M3 is 1000 pounds heavier. The BMW M3 can to 0-60mph in 4.1 seconds, which is fast, but it’s not the biggest, fastest or strongest. For example, a Boeing 747 has 87,325 horsepower, or 210-times as much power as the M3.
