Oh I see. It is not hard to find faster cars. If you just want that you should go for something with a ton of grip and lots of power. Something like a Nissan GTR or 911 turbo. They will rip your head off! If I had bought a C63 AMG just for acceleration and speed, I would regret how heavy it is.
Little known facts about BMW: 1) The N54 is still in production and used in the current Z4 35i and 35is. 2) In a Z4 you can get sport+ steering combined with normal suspension etc by selecting DSC=off. (Update: DSC=off also offers sports steering in the M135i) 3) All Z4s with 19" wheels are still only offered with the worst performing OEM tires ever sold with a DCT equipped BMW (Potenza RE 050 RFT).
