C7 vs BMW M4

Although I'm disappointed with with recent BMW M models, and I'm sure this will be no different, it may be an interesting comparison as the prices between the both cars (fully loaded 70,000+) will be close.

So far we know it will be available with a next gen DCT, twin turbo I-6, around 420hp and 400ft/lb tq. Rumor has it shedding a few hundred pounds, but probably still won't match the C7's power-weight ratio. IMO, the M cars are getting too big and I already miss my e46 M3's smaller size.

This. The Camaro ZL1 and the CTS-V are the M4s competition not the Corvette. The ATS-V is directly targeted at the upcoming M3 which will come only as a sedan
