: I would figure that SC 740 is just like SC 540, and I doubt a SC 540 can take a M5.

the best run he had was 11.4. I do not have any reasons to doubt him: he does not have to work for living and can have any car in the world he wants.

740 had Dinan (Powerdyne) 6 psi blower and Dinan cams. The way I compared two cars was the follwoing: get them up to 20 mph in a second gear and floor it. As I said, sensations were very similar ... they were unreal, outside of this world. The comparison ... Put your 540 into the second gear going about 20 mph and floor. Multiply the result by factor of two. You will get something close to what I experienced.
