: The 745i turbo was a 3 liter engine with a turbo. In the old days when turbo's were THE thing you could have the power output of an engine that had a 50% larger capacity, hence the label 745i.
: The estimated power output of 400HP is completely unreal.
: A MODERN DAY (!) high output turbo engine will give you around 100-115HP per liter, resulting in something like 330HP.
Come on! The euro spec E36 M3 gets 320hp from 3.2 litres - naturally aspirated!
The Impreza WRX STi produces something like 206kw from its 2 litres (about 280hp).
