There's more to driving that 0-60mph!!!
I for the life of me cannot comprehend people's obsession with this particular figure. It is just not that important in the enjoyment of a car. Get a camaro z28 piece of crap if you think it is.
Now, all those cars can probably out-handle an M3 as well but some by very little and some may just outcorner it, not outhandle it.
The M3 is the best performing car within its price range (even if you make the range pretty wide) and costs so much less than the cars you listed that you really can't compare. Now admittedly the term ultimate implies that you can make comparisons in the whole range of cars, but I truly think that the M3 is the ultimate driving machine in its class. Maybe that's what they should call it.
