Maybe they are extremely conservative, like the VW GTI and Golf R’s in terms of tuning. The only problem I can see going forward is that the car appears to be quite light, which is going to cause problems as the power ramps up. Putting down 340 to the wheels out of the factory with no tune would be pretty damn good, all things considered.

It's not terribly far off from the Z4 specs, which is what the motor is from. Not sure why it's much of a surprise. A little under rated, like most BMW's.

If the 1/4 mile times Car and Driver quoted are true ([email protected] 3350lbs), then it lines up exactly with the dyno numbers. Dyno's can be quite a bit off depending on calibration and settings, but the drag pass numbers don't lie. If the 1/4mi pass is true, the power numbers are spot on.

Only two things are keeping this from an insta buy for me. First, I do want to see what the C8 will look like as well as specs and pricing. Second, lack of manual. I already have the Jag in flappy paddles. If I get another flappy paddle car while I have the Jag, the 4C is at the top of the list.

Not surprised its power is underrated, BMW has been doing that for years, especially on turbo cars.
