The new 997 can do low 4s and 12 second 1/4 miles, and that's not neven the 997s. The C51 (not even a Z06) is evern faster. AMG? ROFL, don't kid yourself. Unless that M can do 0-60 in 4 seconds or less and pack more torque than a tank, you can't catch an AMG.
The 997 has 239kw/320hp and 997s has 261kw/355hp so if the M3 gets 300kw/400hp it shouldn't be as outragous as you claim even considering a likely weight increase. It will easily beat the current C55/CLK55/SLK55 some of which will be changed about the same time the M3 shows up, stats on those are not really known yet but they will also get a weight increase being a mercedes.
