The Lexus RC F is taking the fight to the mighty BMW M4. How does it fare on the track? The folks over at AutoExpress headed to the track to see which one is a better car.

The Lexus RC F is powered by a naturally-aspirated 5.0 liter V8 engine producing 467 horsepower and 389 lb-ft of torque sent to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. 0 to 62 mph is achieved in 4.5 seconds. It weighs 1,840 kg (4,057 lbs).

In contrast, the new BMW M3 and M4 have dropped the V8 naturally-aspirated engine and are now using a 3.0 liter, six-cylinder inline turbocharged unit.

  4. […] Lexus has been nipping at BMW’s toes for the past couple of years, like a hyena pestering a lion. However, each and every time the hyena tries to take on the king of the jungle, the big cat gets up and smacks it back down. Well, that time has come again, with Lexus’ latest GS F.
