The V8 twin turbo vs the V6 superchargerd... Same V8 motor that was in the S6 and beat the M5 in Car and Driver with a 0-60 in 3.7. That's why I can't wait to see the RS 7. Same motor as S8 which Motortrend got a 3.5 0-60.. And with less power, torque and more weight than the RS 7.

I honestly think BMW had a beautiful opportunity here but from solely a performance aspect, I think they missed the bullseye. Just my opinion, I know some of you will disagree.
