OK Mr. Guru, what then do our cars put out?

A dyno of a 535i put 277 RWHP and 283 RWTQ to the wheels, straight from the showroom floor (you'll see more RWHP add up as the motor breaks in).

You'd be a one of a kind to have less than 15% drivetrain loss in an automatic, more likely 18-20%.

Also, a 4,000 lb car won't be trapping at 100 MPH with only 300 HP at the crank. Look at statistics of other cars with an *actual* 300 HP, in order to trap that high they need to weight considerably less than 4,000 lbs.
