He would more than likely give the 700 hp M3's a run for their money considering the nasty torque curve his car has.
We already know that on a half-mile roll-on the most significant factor is HP to weight ratio. Torque doesn't matter as much because the cars are already rolling. The torque curve between 0-5,000 RPM is irrelevant because you are going to start in 2nd gear at around 45mph.

Yes I do think Prem will beat me but it will be because he will be making more peak HP than me. We both learned from the previous events to sandbag a bit on the crank HP rating. We will both be making closer to 600 wheel HP but I have a feeling he will be making a lot more and his car is lighter. But...as Prem knows, in the past I've beaten him in our 335's when he was making quite a bit more power...so I have to admit that a little strategy doesn't hurt
