also picked up BMW catalog while in Munich, it has all the new models listed.. says for the new M roadster with 321 hp, top speed is 250 km/hr and 0-100 km in 5.4 sec, m coupe is same, and M3 is tad faster at 5.2 sec, and M5 is 5.3..
so they are saying Z8 is fastest BMW with same top end and 0-100 km in 4.7, m3 second fastest, lot of the cars have same top speed.. hey i wonder if they'll send the Z8 to the M department next year??

By common agreement all European cars (BMW, MB, Porsche, etc) are governed at 250 kph (155 mph). If the governor was released the Z8 would thrash the pants off the others.

BTW, presume you noted that the Euro spec M roadster has a higher output than the US model?
