I remember reading a comparison between an M3 and a Fiat Coupe 20V Turbo, and athough there is a large power difference, performance on the road was quite similar. In a straight line at least, due to the Fiats much better mid-range torque.
The Fiat Coupe and the 3.0 GTV have the same quoted power output, however on the road the Fiat feels a lot faster.
I am sure you wouldn't keep up with an M3 or even a 330i in a 3.0 GTV to be honest.
