Torque is what makes HP go. Both of these cars have plenty of low end torque. The 335d is an absolute beast! 425 lb-ft of torque at 1,200 rpms makes 265 HP feel more like 350 HP. The power just doesn't keep going as far up the rpm range as with the gas motor. But you'll be well north of any legal (or even reasonable) speed way before that becomes an issue.
