Put it in context. Neither of these is a race car. If you bought either of these to race, you bought the wrong car. Neither of these is even close to the M3P in performance. Hell, the M3 LR with boost would be a good match up for the MYP in a straight line.
The point is, the MYP has an early lead but his MY LR clearly was making up some of that time. It just comes back to the MYP's performance is biased for the initial acceleration off the line. After that it clearly flattens out. It is not some amazing supercar. If you want to compare one magazine tests, look at C&D's tests for both cars.
Yes, the MYP beat the stock MY LR 0-60 and in the 1/4. Look a bit deeper and the MY LR beat the MYP to 130 mph by almost 0.6 seconds. So obviously the MYP was being ran down at higher speeds by the lowly LR. So maybe dig a bit deeper in your brain and think about this for a moment. The MYP gave up a pretty significant lead and was being out accelerated by the base MY LR. I would like to know why that is happening if I had a MYP. It is supposed to have about a 50 HP advantage (or possibly more) and if there is any place it should able to continue to show that you would think at high speeds.
Maybe you feel the need to impress someone with how quick your car is. I don't know. I look at the data and see where it leads me. I have considerably quicker vehicles than the MYP its slightly quicker time 0-60 didn't really matter to me given the premium asked for it. If it somehow empowered you, or made you feel good to drive a MYP, good for you. I never felt the need to impress anyone by what I drive.
Looks like I struck a nerve. Pretty sure I said nothing about impressing anyone, that’s all you.
