    The RC-F is not a real competitor to these cars, it doesn’t even try ! They should’ve wait for the AMG C63S Coupe to do this test, and maybe take an auto ATS-V as well.

  2. PHZ says:

    Airheaded comparison. The BMW won because of its superior transmission. Yes, the Cadi should have been compared with the auto as well to make it even. An Audi RS5 would have been interesting to have in the mix too with its AWD…

      I think even if all manual, the M4 is still a better track car. I drove all three cars on track and despite being a bit biased, the M4 was slightly better. More refined.

    I wouldn’t buy any of these cars in coupe form, personally. If I’m not getting the added practicality (and better looks even, imo) of the sedan, I’d rather just have something more hardcore like a Z/28 or the upcoming GT350/350 R.
