Back in January, when Lexus announced their IS-F model, we reported that their new car will go into direct competition with the BMW M3 and the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG.

We have already seen many reports comparing the C63 AMG to BMW's M3, but we haven't seen any videos showing the Lexus IS-F against the other models. The fellows at Car Magazine UK have decided to put all these three models head-to-head and show us what they can do.

Here are the specs on all the three cars that were tested:

  • 2008 BMW M3 Sedan: 4.0 liter V8 engine producing 414 horsepower. 0-60 in 4.9 seconds
  • 2008 Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG: 6.3 liter V8 engine producing 451 horsepower 0-60 in 4.3 seconds
  • 2008 Lexus IS-F: 5.0L direct-injection V8 engine producing 416 horsepower. 0-60 in 4.9 seconds

The outcome? Well, you'll see….
